Mbappe breaks Benzema France record

France wonderkid Kylian Mbappe has broken an impressive national team record previously held by four-time UEFA Champions League winner Karim Benzema.

Mabppé has overtaken Benzema as the youngest player to earn 30 caps for the senior national team after starting their Euro 2020 qualifier against Iceland on Monday.

The 20-year-old is six months younger than the Real Madrid striker was when he reached the landmark nine years ago.

The PSG wonderkid made his debut for Les Bleus in a 3-1 win over Luxembourg in March 2017 before netting his first goal in a World Cup qualifier against the Netherlands in August later that year.

Since then, he’s developed into a key figure in manager Didier Deschamps starting XI.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has scored 10 goals in his last 11 national team starts.
