Kylian Mbappé again and again. By scoring a hat-trick on Saturday evening with the France team against Gibraltar (14-0), as part of the Euro 2024 qualifiers, the captain of the Blues scored his 298th, 299th and 300th career goals. A phenomenal performance at only 24 years old. Asked to react to this impressive statistic, the former top scorer of the France team and current coach of the Espoirs, Thierry Henry, did not fail once again to praise the Bondynois.
“What he’s doing is nonsense. But he got us so used to these performances, it's just incredible. Plus, he doesn't really play in the middle, he's everywhere in fact. He's not the real instinctive scorer, but he scores goals, he delivers passes, he knows how to do almost everything. The problem when you are very, very strong is that people often see what you are not doing, what you have failed or when you have not been good. Afterwards, now, it's true that we are a little demanding with him.
Once again, I often say but let's be happy that he is French. he made two World Cup finals, he scored a hat-trick. He already has 300 goals and he is only sixteen years old (laughing). What do you want me to tell you? It's just extraordinary. Let's continue watching it. Of course, he can still refine things, because we're not always finished. But hey, 300 goals… Some people don’t even put them in training.”, underlined the Arsenal legend.
