Mbappé Surpasses Ronaldo and Matches Messi in Goalscorer Record

France's star Kylian Mbappe continued to write history after he led the "roosters" to a 3-1 victory over Poland in the 2022 World Cup.

France qualified for the quarterfinals of the World Cup in Qatar thanks to this victory, which came in the match that was held at Al-Thumama Stadium in the round of 16.

Mbappe won the man of the match award, and this was expected, as he scored two goals for the French national team and assisted one for Olivier Giroud.

But the most important thing is that Mbappe, 23, entered the history of the World Cup through the widest of doors after he became the first player under the age of 24 to score 9 goals throughout his World Cup participation, 4 in the 2018 edition in Russia and 5 in the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

In addition, Mbappe is the first player in the history of France to score 4 or more goals in two different versions of the World Cup.

Also, Mbappe succeeded in surpassing football legends in terms of ranking the historical scorers of the World Cup, as he surpassed the number of goals of Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentine Diego Armando Maradona, who both scored 8 World Cup goals.

Mbappe equaled the number of Argentine Lionel Messi's goals in the World Cup, knowing that the latter reached 9 goals during the 16th round match against Australia, but Mbappe played fewer matches.

Where Messi scored 9 goals in the World Cup during 23 matches (5 participation) so far.

While Mbappe has played 11 matches and scored 9 goals so far.

Many believe that Kylian Mbappe can easily break the historical record for the most goals-scoring player in the history of the World Cup, which is registered in the name of German Miroslav Klose (16 goals), as Mbappe is still young (23 years old) and will participate in the 2026 and 2030 World Cups at least.

It is worth noting that Mbappe leads the 2022 World Cup scorer rankings in Qatar with 5 goals, two goals behind his closest pursuers, led by Messi, Giroud, and others.
