Kylian Mbappe’s brilliant brace against Argentina not only put France into the World Cup quarter-finals, it also allowed him to match a feat of Pele.
In scoring twice in a thrilling 4-3 win for Les Bleus, Mbappe became the first teenager to hit a World Cup double since Pele in 1958.
The Brazil great had a double-double 60 years ago, scoring twice against France in the semi-finals and then against Sweden in the final itself.
And Pele was quick to congratulate Mbappe on his performance, writing on Twitter: “Congratulations, @KMbappe. 2 goals in a World Cup so young puts you in great company! Good luck for your other games. Except against Brazil!”
