Life just seems to be getting better by the day for Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappé. The 18-year-old passed another career milestone last night, making his debut at full international level for France in the 1-3 win over Luxembourg at Stade Josy Barthel

Mbappé's first call-up for France

Didier Deschamps didn't want to pass up on the young Monaco star's great moment of form  and called Mbappé up for the first time with France's senior squad for yesterday's 2018 World Cup qualifier and Tuesday's friendly against Spain in Paris.

On for final quarter hour, replacing Payet

Mbappé started Saturday's game on the subs' bench and was seen warming up on the touchline uring the first half after Oliver Giroud had given Les Bleus a one-goal lead. But the teenager had to wait until minute 77 to make his entrance, replacing Dimitri Payet and taking up his place on the left flank. Just moments after coming on he forced Luxembourg keeper Ralph Schon into diving low to parry a goal-bound effort.

First cap for France, Kylian Mbappé.

Mbappé, the second youngest player to debut for France

At 18 years and 95 days, Mbappé becomes the second youngest player to debut with France after Maryan Wisnieski who made his first of 33 international appearances aged 18 years and 62 days against Sweden on 3 April 1955.
