Kylian Mbappe is certainly one of the world’s most gifted and entertaining footballers, and this piece of skill in training for France demonstrated his extraordinary flair.
As a cross came in, Mbappe coolly span, putting the ball top corner with a back-heel, roulette volley in what might later be seen as his Maradona warm-up clip moment. It’s a mind-blowing finish, on the volley, right into the top corner.
The coaches and other players practicing can be heard audibly admiring the unnecessary bit of style from Mbappe.
The PSG player was part of the World Cup-winning French team of 2018 and became the youngest player since Pele to score in a World Cup final.
A win for France against Kazakhstan will secure their spot at next year’s tournament in Qatar, where they will hope to join an elite number of sides to win successive World Cups.
That's obscene from Kylian Mbappe 😮💨❄️pic.twitter.com/RpwOTFJNii
