Mbappe makes more France goalscoring history

Comments()
The teenager continues to break records with his goalscoring exploits and was at it again on Thursday

It feels like Kylian Mbappe is setting new scoring records in almost every game he plays. 

In his last outing for PSG the 19-year-old netted four goals in just 13 minutes, becoming the youngest player in Ligue 1 in over 45 years to net four times in a match

And as an encore, Mbappe completed a two-goal turnaround to earn France a draw against Iceland on Thursday, becoming the first player to reach the 10-goal mark for Les Bleus before turning 20. 

France found themselves down two goals to Iceland in Thursday's friendly clash, but Mbappe sparked a late comeback to earn a draw. 

The youngster's first contribution won't earn him much credit as he forced an own goal from the visitors to get his side back into the match. 

But he then turned scorer, taking on a penalty late on and netting to complete the comback. 

His exploits for France continue to underline his status as the top young player in world football. Mbappe scooped the best young player award as France won the World Cup in the summer and is expected to become the first individual to retain the Golden Boy prize.

Mbappe wasn't the only star of the night for France, however.

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was also on the top of his game, despite letting in two goals, and came up with seven saves for his side, the most of any netminder since the 2006 World Cup. 

France will return to action Tuesday with a massive Nations League clash against Germany.
