Top 10 players to look out for in the 2018 FIFA World Cup
#8 - Kylian Mbappé (France):
Kylian Mbappé has conquered the hearts of all the lovers of French football. He is considered to be the biggest rising sensation in Ligue 1 at the moment, And how can he not be, with all these bags of potential within him.
To put things into perspective, the 18-year old scored 6 goals in the UEFA Champions League last season, to guide AS Monaco to the semi-finals of the edition, for the first time since 2004.
With his heroic performances and a full debut for France's national team, it was no surprise that French giants Paris Saint-Germain were quick to acquire his services, for what could add up to a transfer fee of around €180 million, making him the world's second most expensive player in football history, behind his new club-mate, Neymar JR.
Les Bleus are a factory of talents, but Mbappe might well be the most promising one among a galaxy of rising gems.
He is the modern-day striker who is capable of not only scoring goals, but also rescuing games from dead situations, thanks to his sensational burst of pace and dribbling skills, and will be expected to light Russia up next year!
