Top 6 contenders for Ballon d'Or 2018
Could he be the next big thing? At only 19, Kylian Mbappe has already made a name for himself. Coming into the World Cup after an impressive season with PSG, he is part of the attacking trio that has been the French club’s main asset through the season.
Mbappe finished the season being crowned French Ligue 1, French Cup and League Cup champion with PSG. But more importantly, his consistent performances in Russia led to him being named the FIFA World Cup Best Young Player, and he helped France win its second World Cup by beating Croatia in the finals.
The history books have already been updated; he is only the second teenager to score in a World Cup final after Pele and if he goes on to win the Ballon d’Or, Mbappe will be the youngest player to ever do so. The future is very bright for Mbappe and he could be on his way to making history.
