Kylian Mbappe produced another virtuoso performance to equal a long-standing World Cup record held by the all-time great Pele.
Mbappe netted twice to fire France to a deserved 2-1 victory over Denmark to seal their place in the knockout stages in Qatar.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker scored either side of an Andreas Christensen header to secure the victory for Les Bleus.
The superstar striker is enjoying this World Cup, having already found the back of the net in France’s opening-game 4-1 victory over Australia earlier this week.
During the 2018 edition, the Paris-born striker equaled two long-standing records held by Brazilian football legend Pele.
They are the only teenagers who have scored in a World Cup final – as Mbappe netted in the showpiece against Croatia – and the only teens who have bagged a brace in one game in the tournament.
The striker’s two strikes against Denmark took him to seven goals in the World Cup, making him the second player, after Pele, to reach that tally before his 24th birthday.
France are the first team at the Qatar World Cup to seal their place in the last 16 of the competition – despite there being one full round of matches still remaining – and Didier Deschamps’s side are aiming to become the first team this century to retain the trophy.
