Kylian Mbappe continues his remarkable ascent among football's elite after an exceptional display for France in their penultimate UEFA Euro 2024 Qualifiers against Gibraltar.

The 24-year-old delivered a breathtaking performance, guiding Les Bleus to a dominant 14-0 victory over the underdog side, securing France's top spot in Group B.

Mbappe's impact was undeniable, netting three goals and contributing as an assist-maker for three others, orchestrating their most significant win in history at OGC Nice's Allianz Riviera stadium.

Not only did the result make history, but it also upheld France's flawless record in the qualifiers, securing a flawless streak of seven wins in as many games.

Furthermore, the Paris Saint-Germain superstar continues to climb the ladder of France's all-time top scorers. He has surpassed Antoine Griezmann, now claiming the third position on the list.
With 46 goals to his name, Mbappe trails the iconic Thierry Henry by a margin of five goals in second place and Olivier Giroud by eight, currently the leading scorer.

The astounding milestone doesn't end there.
Mbappe reached an astonishing 300 career goals at the tender age of 24, a feat unmatched by even the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Neymar Jr. at a similar age, as per Opta Statistics.
