Mbappé’s early career was marked by frequent comparisons to Henry. Prior to playing at Monaco, they both attended the Clairefontaine Academy in France, where they both won league titles.
Kylian Mbappe has become the youngest player to score 300 goals. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been left behind by him. Thierry Henry, a former exceptional French player, lavished praise on Mbappe in this circumstance. Mbappe was 24 years and 333 days old when he accomplished this feat. Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the two biggest players of the twenty-first century, were older when they achieved this feat. Mbappe achieved this feat in the 14-0 victory over Gibraltar.
France under-21 coach Henry said “What this kid is doing is really out of this world. It’s incredible.”
Early in his career, Mbappé was frequently likened to Henry. Before joining Monaco, they both went to the Clairefontaine Academy in France, where they both won league championships. Then, in his first significant competition, Mbappe repeated another of Henry’s accomplishments by helping France win the 2018 World Cup. The 1998 tournament was won by Henry. Mbappe is also likened to the legendary Brazilian player Pele because of his speed. He is similar to Henry in terms of style, though, because of his amazing speed and talent.
“He’s a goalscorer, he assists, he can do it all,” Henry remarked. Of course, there is space for development, but that is not the main objective.
With his 17th career hat-trick, Mbappe increased his goal total to 21 in 19 games this season. The PSG player’s goal was his 46th in 74 international games. He now trails France’s all-time scoring record by just five goals and is just ten goals short of teammate Oliver Giroud’s record for the country.
There will always be controversy surrounding Pelé’s career goal total. He often declared that his accomplishment of scoring more than 1,000 goals made him the greatest player of all time. However, a lot of people contest his tally because Pelé doesn’t include goals from friendlies, games against semi-professionals, or even amateur teams.
When asked how many goals Mbappe could reach, Henry jokingly hinted at 1,000 goals, then added, “That’s for him to decide. He’s a guy who’s interested in football, who knows himself well.” “The way he prepares, his professionalism, and his desire to play is always there. 300 goals is a feat that some players don’t even achieve during training.”
