Paris: After adding a winning feather in the World Cup, Kylian Mbappe finally becomes the best young player in the world after making history by scoring 4 goals leading to a victory of PSG over Lyon. Mbappe scooped the best young player award after France win at World Cup 2018 and now he is a potential candidate to win the Golden Boy prize.
The game starts with red cards for Presnel Kimpembe and Lucas Tousart which proceeded to an ill-disciplined tinge. But as the clock ticked an hour, the stage was set for Mbappe who scored four times in the space of 13 second-half minutes as PSG ran riot to further cement their leadership of Ligue 1.
Following Neymar’s mazy run, Mbappe smashed the ball in off the post after 61 minutes. He doubled his tally when Marquinhos crossed, tapping into a virtually empty net.
Neymar then turned provider for a second time as he put the 19-year-old clean through, with goalkeeper Anthony Lopes beaten by an arrowing shot from 18 yards.
The remarkable display was complete when Mbappe reacted first after Neymar’s shot was cleared off the line and slammed into the net.
“I missed some opportunities yes, and I should have scored more goals, but that’s normal,” said the teenager.
“It’s part of the steps that I have to go through, to really get to the top. But I will work.”
Mbappe’s haul saw him become the youngster player in 45 seasons to score four goals in one French top-flight match in a victory which all-but secures a second straight title for PSG.
Victory saw Thomas Tuchel’s side became the first to win their first nine games of any France Ligue 1 season as they went eight points clear at the top.
