Kylian Mbappe Shatters French Goalscoring Record with 54 Goals in a Season
Kylian Mbappe, the French professional footballer, has made history by breaking the French goalscoring record with his 54th goal of the season. The record was previously held by Just Fontaine, who scored 53 goals in a single season in 1957-58. Mbappe's remarkable achievement came during France's 1-0 win over Greece in the Euro 2024 qualifying match.
The decisive goal occurred in the second half when Mbappe scored from the penalty spot after Antoine Griezmann was fouled. Greece faced further challenges when they were reduced to 10 men for the final 20 minutes after Konstantinos Mavropanos was sent off for a foul.
This record-breaking goal brings Mbappe level with Erling Haaland for the most goals scored in a single season. Haaland has the opportunity to regain the lead when Norway faces Cyprus on Tuesday.
France's head coach, Didier Deschamps, expressed satisfaction with his team's performance but noted that they could have scored more goals. "The only regret I have is to not be able to play safe because we had chances to score the second goal," he said.
Monday's goal marks Mbappe's 40th for France in just 70 matches. The young footballer is now only 14 goals away from equaling Olivier Giroud's record for Les Bleus.
With 12 points from four games, France remains at the top of their qualifying group. They are set to face the Republic of Ireland in September. This milestone not only solidifies Mbappe's status as one of the world's leading footballers but also highlights the strength of the French national team as they continue their pursuit of success in the Euro 2024 tournament.
