Kylian Mbappe The Greatest Talent in Football Since Pele?

After becoming the first teenager to score in a World Cup final since Pele in 1958, Kylian Mbappe's astonishing rise has continued with the striker winning the first ever Kopa Trophy at the 2018 Ballon d'Or award ceremony. Born in France to a Cameroonian father and Algerian mother - the teenager has arguably already cemented his status as the biggest talent in football in the past 60 years.
