Pelé congratulated the young Mbappé via social networks with the words: "Only the second teenager who scored at #WorldCupFinal !. Welcome to the club, it's great to have company!

Soccer player with a passion for sneakers.
He described himself as a "child with a new toy" when he has new sneakers. NIKE even has a special edition on its website dedicated to it called "BOTIQUE DE MBAPPÉ"

A boy who has become a symbol for people in the suburbs, Mbappé comes from Bondy, which is about 11 km northeast of Paris. The city respects the young player so much that it was written in red on the town hall, which says: "Thank you Kylian, all the people of Bondy are with you." Already in his football beginnings for AS Bondy he was described as the "future Henry"
