Kylian Mbappe’s double effort buries Messi’s Argentina

Two fantastic goals from 19-year-old French sensational forward Kylian Mbappe emphatically dumped Argentina and Lionel Messi out of the Russia 2018 WOrld Cup in the round of 16.

Mbappe starred throughout a pulsating, seven-goal affair with two brilliant strikes after half-time as France took command after the interval.

Antoine Griezmann’s penalty broke the deadlock, before Angel Di Maria equalised with one of the goals of the competition.

A deflected strike from defender Gabriel Mercado put Argentina ahead, before Benjamin Pavard levelled with a brilliant effort with the outside of his boot.

Mbappe commanded play in the second half.

The teenager scored two goals in four minutes, meaning Sergio Aguero’s stoppage time header was nothing but a consolation as Jorge Sampaoli’s side succumbed to a dramatic 4-3 defeat.
