He has won a million hearts while playing on the ground, and a billion hearts off the ground.19 years old Kylian Mbappe, the best young player of the FIFA world cup 2018, is a perfect example both on and off the field.
Donating all his world cup earning to a charity, he is a world cup winner who serves the humanitarian cause.
Born 20 December 1998, in Paris, Kylian Mbappé Lottin is a French professional footballer who plays as a forward for Paris Saint-Germain and the France national team.
His father, Wilfried Mbappé, is from Cameroon, is a football coach, while his mother, Fayza Lamari, is from Algeria, and is a former handball player. As a mixed-race child born into a sporting family, one thing was certain for the young Mbappe, “Football”.
Mbappe came into eminence at an early age, starring for the youth academy at Bondy before entering Monaco, where he made his professional debut in 2015. Mbappe then hastily settled himself as a regular goalscorer for the first team in the 2016–17 season, as he aided the club get their first Ligue 1 title in seventeen years.
A year later, he moved to Paris Saint-Germain for €180 million, making him the most expensive teenager, and the world’s second-most expensive player. In his starring season in the French capital, Mbappe was highlighted massively as the club hooked a domestic treble of Ligue 1, Coupe de France, and Coupe de la Ligue.
Mbappe made his senior debut for France in 2017, after initially representing them at under-17 and under-19 levels. At the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Mbappe became the youngest French player to score at a World Cup, and became the second teenager, after Pelé, to score in a World Cup Final. France won the tournament and he was one of France’s best player at the 2018 world cup. He was the team’s joint top goalscorer with four goals and finished as the joint second-highest goalscorer, and he received the Best Young Player Award for his performances.

Style of play:
He had technique and vision in the game that most players just don’t have. He has got eyes in the back of his head. He knows how to anticipate where the ball will go. Mbappe has been illuminated by Arsene Wenger as a “huge football talent” who “has similarities to “Thierry Henry”.
His talent and sassy performances for France at the 2018 World Cup also led him to be compared to Pele in the media. His footwork and pace were a nightmare for opposing teams. A skillful forward, Mbappe often plays as a winger and is efficient for playing on either flank, due to his competency with either foot.
He is capable of cutting into the center onto his stronger right foot from the left wing and is also capable of generating opportunities and providing a boost for teammates from the right. He is also able to play in the center as the main striker, due to his fortitude, analytical finishing, and eye for goal.
A highly talented player, Mbappe is also known for his exemplary dribbling competency, as well as his explosive acceleration, agility, quick feet, and creativity when in custody of the ball, as manifested by his use of elaborate feints, such as stepovers, or sudden changes of pace or direction to beat opponents in one on one situations. In spite of his tall lean frame, he is also an athletic player, gifted with physical strength.
Mbappe is as generous as he is talented.
Sports Illustrated estimated Mbappé’s wages to be about $22,500 or some R300,000 a game, as well as a $350,000 (R4.6 million) bonus for winning the tournament. France played seven games throughout the World Cup, so Mbappé’s earnings most likely totaled just over R6.6 million — but he won’t use a penny of it on himself. He is donating all his world cup winnings to “Premiers de Cordee”, a charity that offers sporting opportunities to children who are hospitalized or have disabilities.
He is just 19, as is in the way to making a world better place. He is inspiring many by serving humanity.
Julian Mbappe is not just a star at the club and international level, he is also a true star in everyones heart.
