Mbappe wrote his way into World Cup history with a brilliant performance to put Argentina to the sword in a vintage last 16 clash.
But, for former Les Bleus and Manchester United forward Cantona, Mbappe is already a star worthy of a hilarious tribute, composed to the melody of Evita's signature songs.
"Don't cry 4-3 Argentina!" the charismatic Frenchman bellowed in a video posted on Instagram, as he referred to Mbappe's now-famous speed: "The truth is that he is faster than you.
"Running through the field, you could not catch him, you tried your hardest, he kept his distance."
And there was no mistaking the message of the song, as Cantona signed off by simply stating: "Kylian Mbappe is amazing!"
Mbappe and France will be back in action on Friday against the Celeste, with the likes of Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez tasked with stopping the in-form speedster.
