Kylian Mbappe's iconic moments for PSG, France and Monaco
Planet Sport takes a look at Kylian Mbappe's most iconic moments for club and country.
Mbappe has quickly risen to soccer stardom after making his debut for Monaco as a fresh-faced teenager in 2015.
Following his debut breakthrough season, the French forward moved to league rivals Paris Saint-Germain where he still currently plies his trade.
In his relatively short career, Mbappe has wasted little time to become a household name across the globe and it comes as no surprise the Monaco academy-product has frequently been compared to French compatriot Thierry Henry.
Aged just 22, the rapid forward boasts an impressive wealth of trophies, including domestic trebles, major international honours and a host of individual accolades.
Renowned for his speed, versatility and two-footed finishing abilities, Planet Sport takes a look at the standout moments from Mbappe's illustrious career so far.
League title with Monaco and individual recognition
His 26 goals in 44 matches in all competitions propelled his side to a Champions League semifinal and their first Ligue 1 crown in 17 years.
His most notable performances came against Metz and Manchester City that year.
A hat trick against the former side made him the youngest to ever do so in Ligue 1 since Jeremy Menez in 2005. While a simple tap-in against the Citizens represented a remarkable mid-season run of form, in which he scored 11 goals in 11 games.
Golden Boy award and guiding France to U-19 Euro success
Spectacular performances at club level were then replicated by the forward on the international stage, albeit initially at Under-19 level.
France won the 2016 UEFA European Championship with relative ease, crushing Italy 4-0 in the final of the youth tournament.
He scored five goals across the tournament, two of which came versus Portugal in the semi-final where he single-handedly sealed the French's place in the final with a dazzling display.
Moving to Paris Saint-Germain and becoming the most expensive teenager ever
League rivals Paris St-Germain only allowed Mbappe two seasons to establish himself at Monaco before prising him away to the Parc des Princes.
Nevertheless, after a year on loan, Mbappe became the world's most expensive teenager and the second-most expensive soccer transfer, when signing on the dotted line at PSG for an estimated £200million ($265million).
A transfer fee which can only be eclipsed by the man he was about to partner in attack - Neymar.
PSG's French domination and Ligue 1 Player of the Year
With a front three of Neymar, Mbappe and Edinson Cavani, it was perhaps inevitable PSG cruised to the 2017/18 Ligue 1 title.
In March 2019, a goal against Caen symbolised his 50th for Unai Emery's Parisians. Prior to that, four goals in 13 minutes against Lyon made Mbappe the youngest player to score four goals in a game in Ligue 1 over the last 45 seasons.
His rapid rise to the top continued with France Football awarding him the inaugural Kopa Trophy, recognising the world's most expensive teenager as the brightest soccer talent under the age of 21.
Back-to-back league top goalscorer and another domestic treble
Aged just 20 years and 306 days, Mbappe then became the youngest player to grab 15 Champions League goals, as he completed the perfect hat trick away at Club Brugge.
Due to the interventions of Covid-19, Ligue 1 was cut short in May. However, the same outcome still occurred; PSG won the title, Mbappe finished as top goalscorer for the second consecutive season.
The one medal which still evades him, however, is the Champions League. A competition in which PSG were involved in when soccer returned post Covid-19 stoppage.
Champions League finalist and history maker
Returning to action in the Champions League quarter-final against Atalanta, Mbappe came on as a second-half substitute to assist Eric Choupo-Moting's late injury-time winner.
This win put Thomas Tuchel's men into their first Champions League semi-final since 1995 and was only their second appearance at this late knockout stage.
Despite a quiet semifinal performance from the forward against RB Leipzig, the Parisians crushed their opponents 3-0 to reach their first-ever Champions League final.
Mbappe still remains in search of an elusive Champions League medal, which is virtually the only medal he is missing, despite having only been a professional soccer player for less than a decade.
Winning the 2018 World Cup and Best Young Player award
After impressing for the French Under-19 side, Mbappe became the second youngest to ever represent France's senior side, appearing against Luxembourg three months after his 18th birthday.
However, his 2018 World Cup, and perhaps Les Bleus' tournament in general, was defined by Mbappe's fine solo performance against Argentina in the knockout stages.
The only other player ever to do so in history? Pele.
In true Mbappe fashion, as had become the norm for the teenage sensation, he scored in the 4-2 final win over Croatia, making him the second teenager to score in a World Cup final.
First hat-trick for France
Didier Deschamps' side ran riot as their 8-0 home victory ensured qualification for next year's tournament.
