Mbappé the second youngest player ever to score in a World Cup final
The French striker scored France’s fourth as they overcame Croatia in the final in Moscow.
Kylian Mbappé wrote his name into the record books in France's 4-2 win over Croatia in the World Cup final in Moscow, becoming the second youngest player to score in a World Cup final, at the tender age of just 19 years and 207 days. Only the great Pele managed the feat at a younger age, scoring twice in the final of the World Cup in Sweden in 1958, when he was just 17 years and 251 days old.
