We need to talk about Kylian Mbappe’s latest performance in detail, the French striker’s goal-scoring talent seems to have no limits. 

Kylian Mbappe has a unique goal-scoring talent that we’ve written about many times before, yesterday’s performance keeps proving how important he is.

Football finally found an ideal heir to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s throne, we believed Neymar was that player but Mbappe came to clear the air completely.

We can spot the many qualities he has from a distance, even if we are watching him play through the television.

The PSG fans had been waiting for him to return to his fetish tournament, the UEFA Champions League.

In the French club’s visit against Club Brugge, Thomas Tuchel finally decided to include him on the list of players for the trip.

The idea was to give him a few minutes during the second half, which is more than enough time to make an impact for a player of his talents.

The gaffer decided to get him on the pitch with the scoresheet still at 1-0, PSG was really struggling to find the space to hurt Brugge.

But having a player like Mbappe is a blessing for any team, it doesn’t matter if they are part of squad that doesn’t have a system or a style of play.

This is a similar situation that Real Madrid went through with Cristiano Ronaldo, they lacked the system but they had him to score all the goals. 

In Kylian Mbappe’s case, having him inside the squad can make all the difference. From the very first ball he touched, we had the same speed and pace back.

When he combines with his teammates, he does it in an effortless manner that takes anybody’s breath away.

Kylian scored his first goal with a header, he proceeded to set Mauro Icardi up for his second with a clinical assist.

The trio formed by Kylian, Mauro, and Angel Di Maria was devastating t Brugge during the final half-hour of the game.

After his first goal, Mbappe had another two clear chances to score that got deflected by the goalkeeper.

This means that he could’ve ended that match with five goals in one game, but a hat-trick would suffice.

The French forward received an assist from Di Maria for his brace, and both players repeated the same formula for his third.

That was a 0-5 result in Brugge for PSG, they pretty much secured a place in the UEFA Champions League’s knock-out stages.

Neymar must’ve watched the whole match from Paris, he must be thrilled to return to the pitch and play alongside Kylian.

Watching both of them this season at their best will be incredible, they truly have a claim for the title this season. 

Kylian Mbappe’s historic record. 

We need to talk about the record that Kylian Mbappe broke last Tuesday, he reached a unique milestone that no other player has reached before.

There is a good chance that we will have to wait many years before we can get another player who can surpass Mbappe.

Before last Tuesday in Brugge, Lionel Messi held the record of the youngest footballer to reach 15 UEFA Champions League goals in the tournament’s history.

The Argentine reached this record during the 2008-09 season, he was 21 years old at the time.

Mbappe is set to turn 21 in December, which means that he surpassed Messi by a few months and became the youngest to reach this goal.

In fact, Kylian Mbappe set a new record by reaching 17 goals before he turns 21.

This should be more than enough proof that the French forward truly is the next great player, the one who will dominate the world during the next era.

We are about to experience a whole new season watching him enjoy his game, we don’t know what’s in store for us.

However, we can already tell you that this lad has no limits and we still have no idea how far he will get throughout his career.
