Mbappé played an integral part of all three trophy-winning teams, contributing with 17 goals and 10 assists across competitions.

The 19-year-old assisted twice in PSG’s 3-0 thrashing of Monaco in the Coupe de la Ligue final, establishing himself as one of the best players in the side.

He is also a world champion. Mbappé  scored four times in Russia, saving his best for the knockout rounds.

Mbappé single-handedly dismantled a Messi-led Argentina side in the round of 16, winning the penalty for France’s opener before scoring twice to secure the victory. He also found the back of the net in the final against Croatia in the final, an essential asset for 'Les Bleus'.

Despite missing out on the Golden Ball, the former Monaco star was named the Best Young Player in his first World Cup instead.

Following his impressive performance in Russia the Frenchman has continued his impressive form, scoring 11 goals and 4 assists in just 9 league matches so far. A deserved winner.
