NBCNEWS – The World Cup Qualifying match between the French national team against Kazakhstan became a stage that Kylian Mbappe really enjoyed. How not, the 22-year-old striker bought up half of all goals scored by Les Bleus.
Playing in front of thousands of fans themselves, at the Parc des Princes, Paris, Sunday (11/14/2021) early morning WIB, Didier Deschamps’ team won 8-0.
As mentioned earlier, the Paris Saint-Germain striker scored 4 goals and 3 of them, aka Mbappe’s hat-trick, were made in the first half. And to fulfill his goal, at the end of the second half Mbappe scored one more goal. Total 4 goals.
Not only that, Mbappe also made one assist for Karim Benzema’s goal at the beginning of the second half.
