Paris, France: Kylian Mbappe, the prodigious French striker, once again etched his name in football history as he scored a crucial goal to secure a 1-0 home victory for France against Greece in their Euro 2024 qualifying Group B match on Monday. With this win, France maintained their flawless record in the qualifiers, solidifying their position as one of the tournament favorites.
In a tightly contested match, Kylian Mbappe proved to be the difference-maker as he calmly converted a second-half penalty to find the back of the net. However, this goal carried even more significance as it propelled Mbappe to become the all-time leading French scorer over a season, surpassing a record that had stood for over six decades. His remarkable tally of 54 goals for both club and country throughout the season surpassed the previous mark set by Just Fontaine during the 1957-58 campaign.
Mbappe’s achievement is a testament to his exceptional talent, work ethic, and consistency on the football field. At a young age, he has already established himself as one of the world’s finest strikers and continues to break records and milestones with each passing game. His ability to find the net regularly has made him a vital asset for both his club and the French national team.
