The Frenchman hit a double to inspire Les Bleus to a comfortable win over Poland.

Kylian Mbappe has broken two goalscoring record set by Pele at the World Cup following his contribution for France in Sunday's clash with Poland. The 23-year-old forward scored twice to inspire Les Bleus to a 3-1 win as they booked their ticket to the quarter-final.

Olivier Giroud outrightly became France's all-time leading goalscorer by scoring his 52nd international goal on the brink of half-time. The historic goal saw the AC Milan striker surpassing Thierry Henry's haul of 51 goals as a result.

Having provided the assist for Giroud's opener goal, Kylian Mbappe stepped to score two remarkable goals in the second half. The first was a powerful drive into the roof of the net from edge of the penalty box before scoring a briliant curler for the second in injury time to take the lead in the Golden Boot race with five goals. Robert Lewandowski got a consolation for Poland from the penalty spot with the last kick of the game.

With Mbappe's contribution against Poland, he took his goal tally across two World Cups to nine, surpassing Pele's haul of eight. In addition, he became the youngest player (aged 23 years and 349 days) to reach five knockout stage goals at the World Cup since Pelé in 1958 (17y 249d). Superstar. The Paris Saint-Germain sensation is also the first player in France's history to score four goals or more goals at multiple World Cups.
