Mbappe watch: As in-demand starlet makes his first international start one France forward should be quaking in his boots

Date Posted,March 28, 2017

World football’s most in demand teenager Kylian Mbappe’s meteroic rise continued onto the international stage with his full debut in front of an expectant 80,000 in Paris as France hosted Spain .

The 18-year-old has terrorised defences across Ligue 1 and dumped Manchester City out of the Champions League by netting in each leg of their last 16 clash to arouse the interest of City and across Manchester at Old Trafford with Chelsea also linked.

Mbappe’s pace and poise in front of goal has inspired comparisons to a young Thierry Henry and despite being faced with a central defensive pairing of Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos, the youngster showed he already has the ability to shine on the highest stage.

Only David de Gea’s outstretched leg prevented a fairytale start for Mbappe as he made an intelligent near post run to meet Layvin Kurzawa’s low cross inside the first five minutes.
