The young star has continued to dazzle his way at the ongoing 2022 FIFA World Cup that is being hosted in Qatar. Mbappe took his goal tally since he made his debut in the competition during the Russia 2018 World Cup to 9 goals.
The two goals against Poland means he has surpassed Pele for the most World Cup goals scored by a men’s player before turning 24 years old.
It was a game of breaking records as France’s number-one goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris (142) equaled Lilian Thuram’s record as the most-capped player in the history of the French national team.
Olivier Giroud took over from Thiery Henry as the highest goal scorer for the French national team. The former Chelsea player achieved this feat in the Round of 16 matches against Poland at the ongoing Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup. Giroud scored the opening goal of the match in the last minutes of the first half.
