Speaking to TF1 after France’s 5-0 win over South Africa tonight, Kylian Mbappé notably stated that he was aiming to reach Thierry Henry’s record as France’s all-time top scorer, on 51 goals.
With his double tonight, the Paris Saint-Germain man reached 26, while Olivier Giroud also netted to bring himself to within three goals of the 1998 World Cup winner’s tally.
“Of course it’s an objective, I’ve always wanted to be the first at everything, whether that’s with the French team or in club football.”
“There’s still a long way to go. Nobody’s done what Titi did. I think I can get there much quicker than people think.”
