France legend Thierry Henry has lauded Kylian Mbappe’s goal-scoring prowess after the PSG forward notched his 300th career goal. Mbappe’s remarkable achievement came in a stellar performance against Gibraltar, where he secured a hat-trick in France’s historic 14-0 victory in the UEFA European Championship Qualifiers. The highlight was a stunning 40-yard chip over the goalkeeper for his milestone goal.
Henry, reflecting on Mbappe’s extraordinary talent, acknowledged the challenges that come with being consistently excellent. He jokingly remarked, “When you are so good, people often see when you miss or when you’re not good.” Henry expressed joy in Mbappe’s French identity and predicted the young star’s potential to go even higher in goal-scoring records.
Currently third on France’s all-time goal-scoring list with 46 goals, Mbappe is closing in on Henry (51) and Olivier Giroud (56). With the next challenge against Greece in the UEFA European Championship Qualifiers, Mbappe aims to contribute to his country’s success. Additionally, PSG’s upcoming Ligue 1 clash with Monaco provides an opportunity to extend their lead under coach Luis Enrique.
