Mbappe shines in Messi’s World Cup

In the final, he brought back memories made by Joe Hurst in the 1966 World Cup. No one has that feat, Diego Maradona, Zinedine Zidane, ‘The Phenomenon’ Ronaldo. Hurst scored a hat-trick against Germany at Wembley 56 years ago; It was the first hat-trick in the World Cup final. Mbappe clinched the former England forward’s lone spot on that list, but Seber Hurst got a taste of the title, perhaps Mbappe’s companion to endless regret.

Mbappe has only played in two World Cups, but he is running fast on the list of top goalscorers. He has touched the legendary Pele who scored 12 goals. He has just 1 goal less than Messi and compatriot great Just Fontaine. Miroslav Klose (16) and Ronaldo (15) who are the top two in this list can be said to be within Mbappe’s reach.

Mbappe didn’t win the World Cup despite so many pages of statistics. Therefore, when he came to the stage to receive the award for the highest goal scorer with eight goals, the young man’s eyes and face were full of sadness. There’s no way to hide it when you’re on stage, taking pictures. When he came to take the ‘Golden Boot’, his feet didn’t want to move, even if French President Emmanuel Macron patted his back, his face remained heavy.
