Mbappe: Boy To Man

0


Mbappe Shows Maturity With World Cup.Kylian Mbappe is now compared with the Great Edson Arantes do Nascimento aka Pelé. Yes, the Brazilian won the World Cup as a 17-year old and got a goal in the final and Mbappe has won the World Cup as a 19-year old and also scored in the final. Two teenagers to have won the World Cup.He was born just a year after France captured their first World Cup in 1998. He followed his hero, Henry Thierry who was a key member of that glorious squad with passion as he grew up. It didn’t take long for the former Arsenal legend to notice the kid as a future star for Les Bleus. Mbappe grew up following the sport’s big boys as he pasted the photographs of reknown stars of the sport he loved on the wall of his room.While following the footprints of legends, he was love-struck with Cristiano Ronaldo who stole the glamour of club football with Manchester United when Mbappe was just nine. By the time CR7 would win his fifth Champions League title and a straight third one with Real Madrid, Mbappe was in his 19th year and also competed in that competition with Paris giants, Paris Saint Germain having moved from the principality and Ligue Un rival side, AS Monaco in a record transfer fee for a player his age.When the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup commenced, Mbappe starred alongside his boyhood heroes, Ronaldo who captained Portugal and Henry who was assistant coach of third place winners, Belgium. He scored key goals, four in all but the most memorable of them all will be the one in the final against Croatia which was the third goal in the 4-2 classic.That sublime strike pasted his name in the history of the World Cup. It announced his arrival at the global stage. It erased all doubts and cynicism about how far he could go given his electrifying pace and athleticism which helped France hugely during counterattacks and to reach the final.Surely, Mbappe will be the player and name everyone will be looking out for come Qatar 2022. But before that tournament, he will be the attraction of the new football season in Europe. May be, just may be, he would attract the biggest transfer before the start of the season. There are speculations that he could be a Galactico if Real Madrid fail to get Neymar or Eden Hazard. But with his World Cup triumph, his value surely is higher than those of both players.Indeed, Mbappe is no longer the little French boy who loves football and sees Henry and Ronaldo as his heroes, he is already a role model and source of inspiration to millions of kids around the world following his feat in Russia
