Kylian Mbappe has begun 2022 in the same way he ended the previous calendar year, scoring a hat-trick against Vannes in the Coupe de France last 32 after scoring a brace against SC Feignies in the previous round.
Reaching 200 Goals
PSG won both games to advance to the round of 16, where they will face Nice, and Mbappe scored his 200th career goal. In 309 games for Monaco, PSG, and the national team, the France international has scored 201 goals.
Mbappe scored 27 goals in 60 games for Monaco and has 24 goals in 53 games for Les Blues, giving him a total of 150 goals in 196 games with PSG.
“I am afraid of not winning, of disappointing,” Mbappe said in a recent interview with Thierry Henry.
“My wish is to leave a mark.”
Only Edinson Cavani (200 goals) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (156) have scored more goals for PSG than Mbappe (150).
Meanwhile, no player his age has scored 30 Champions League goals, and he is the youngest player in Ligue 1 history to score 100 goals.
Mbappe has scored 31 goals in Europe and 116 goals in the French league so far. He also only needs four more goals to become France’s top ten scorers of all time. In 24 games for PSG this season, Mbappe has already scored 15 goals and provided 15 assists.
Real Madrid has expressed interest in signing him until the end of his contract, which runs until June.
