Mbappé: the incredible marks he is looking for against Morocco and the record he fights with Messi

It doesn’t seem, but kylian mbappe He’s going to be 24 in less than a week. At the age when many of us do not have a bank account, the Frenchman of African parents is going to play his second World Cup semifinal (vs. the surprising Morocco) and is also on his way to breaking all possible records written in football, not only early ones.

“This World Cup is my obsession. I have built my entire season around this competition. I have prepared myself to the fullest both physically and mentally to win it, which is the goal I set for myself”said ‘Kiki’ before the quarterfinals, as if he had not lifted the trophy four years ago, as if he carried the pressure of taking the title to the nation on his shoulders.

If in Russia 2018, at just 20 years old, he scored four goals. In Qatar, the Paris Saint Germain attacker has five goals and two assists. In other words, beyond the good performances that exist in France with Giroud and Griezmann, Kylian is leading his team by the hand on his way to playing a second consecutive final with the aim of being a two-time champion.

At the moment, Mbappé is the top scorer in the tournament along with Lionel Messi, his teammate at PSG, although with the difference that the Frenchman has played fewer minutes than the Argentine. In the third game of the group stage, with France classified, Kylian started the actions from the substitute bench, while Leo has not missed a single minute of the six that Argentina is playing, he even played the 120 minutes (plus added ) against the Netherlands in the quarterfinals.

But beyond the present, Mbappé has some records ahead of him that he could approach in the match against Morocco by his friend Hakimi. Next we tell you what they are and how many possibilities he has to do it.

Mbappé on the hunt for several records

Kylian Mbappé has an obsession: being a two-time world champion. He wants it like no one else and he has a stellar team to back up his dream. If he does, he will catch up with Pelé (1958 and 1962), but also with the Italian team that won the two-time championship in 1934 and 1938. In other words, he will be on the select list of World Cup stars who did it.

In addition, to lift the cup on Sunday, December 18 (that is, to beat Morocco today and then Argentina in the final), the Frenchman would join the VIP list of a total of 21 footballers in history who managed to lift two times the World Cup.

Mbappé and the other champions in Russia 2018 would be the first French to achieve this and would join an Argentine (Daniel Passarella), four Italians (Giovanni Ferrari, Guido Masetti, Giuseppe Meazza and Eraldo Monzeglio) and 16 Brazilians (Pelé, Bellini, Cafú , Castilho, Didí, Djalma Santos, Garrincha, Gilmar, Mauro, Nilton Santos, Pepe, Ronaldo, Vavá, Zagallo, Zito and Zózimo).

On the other hand, there is an amazing brand that you could own as well. And it is that in Spain 82, Paolo Rossi won the title with Italy being the top scorer of the tournament and best player for FIFA. Kylian, for the moment, is one of the scorers (5 goals) and is on his way, along with Messi, to be chosen as the best of the competition.

On the horizon is also the record for the top scorer in the history of the World Cups, something that, by his numbers, does not seem unattainable for him. He currently has nine goals and is seven away from reaching the 16 of the German Miroslav Klose. With the particularity that Mbappé is 24 years old, that is, he has at least two more World Cups left.
