‘It’s Pele’ — Wenger recalls seeing Mbappe play

(CNN)When Kylian Mbappe scored France’s final goal last July’s 4-2 victory over Croatia, he became only the second teenager in history to score in a World Cup final.

The man he emulated was Brazil great Pele, who scored twice as an 18-year-old when Brazil beat Sweden 5-2 in the 1958 final and who is, to this day, the only player to have won three World Cups.
Mbappe was lavished with praise from all over the world for his performances in Russia, most notably for his scintillating match-winning display which knocked Lionel Messi’s Argentina out of the competition.
