Kylian Mbappe skills: France star stuns Belgium with back-heel | Football | Sport


Kylian Mbappe has proved to be one of the players of the tournament so far this summer.

The PSG froward boasted three goals for the campaign heading into France’s semi-final showdown in St Petersburg.

He had already ripped apart Argentina in the knockout stage.

And Mbappe was at his best again tonight as he set up what was almost a sensational goal.

The 19-year-old looked to be boxed in by Belgian defenders on the edge of the area before he slickly played a back-heel right into Olivier Giroud’s path.

His team-mate Giroud went through one-on-one but his shot was saved by Thibaut Courtois.

Yet Mbappe’s moment of magic was spotted by BBC pundits Rio Ferdinand, Pat Nevin and Danny Murphy.

Ferdinand was filmed by Gary Lineker shrieking at the effort in the BBC studio.

And both former players gushed over Mbappe’s skills.

“Kylian Mbappe seems to have a maturity that you shouldn’t posses at that age and it’s all so effortless,” Murphy said.

“He’s exceeded expectations and everyone is enjoying watching him play.”

And Nevin added: “What about the touch from Mbappe? By miles the best touch of the match. That was absolutely gorgeous from Mbappe.”
