Kylian Mbapp put a new ‘notch on his revolver’ in the win, the biggest in its history, of France over Gibraltar (14-0). The PSG star scored a hat-trick, including a goal from almost midfield, and reached the figure of 300 goals… at only 25 years old.
“It’s special because there are many players who have left their mark in the world of football… and they haven’t reached 300 goals. However, for me, it is just one step. “I know where I want to go and it’s much more than 300 goals,” said Mbapp into the ‘TF1’ microphones.

A milestone that has motivated ‘L’quipe’ to resort to Jean-Pierre PapinBaln de Oro in 1991, to address ‘guess’ how far Mbapp can go. The prestigious French newspaper even dares to trace a progression. If he continues like this for another nine seasons, Mbapp will finish his career with 637 goals. A figure that, currently, is only surpassed by Cristiano (866) and Messi (821).
“When you are not even 25 years old and you have already scored 300 goals, it means that the best is yet to come. His precocity and regularity are strange, almost unique. The bar is very high, but it is raised a little higher each time,” says ‘JPP’.

Papin dares, yes, to offer advice to Mbapp: “You should not set goals or limits. If you are not injured, “he can be scoring between 45 and 55 goals for years.”
The former Milan and Olympique Marseille attacker, among others, does not believe that the loss of speed that Mbapp may experience over the years is going to become a handicap: “It may lose some speed, but it will still be faster than much.”s. Your experience will help you execute actions in a different way: attacking the right areas at the exact moment. And we must not forget its definition, it will always have that.”
