France superstar Kylian Mbappe was won the Golden Boot for the 2022 World Cup, tallying eight goals in the competition with a hat trick in the final. Mbappe was unable to repeat as a World Cup champion, but he now has a great individual honor to add to his accolades as he continues to build a strong career.
Mbappe’s hat trick kept France alive in the final and send the game to penalty kicks. Mbappe had two penalty goals and made a third penalty in the shootout, although that will not count to his statistics. France looked completely out of sorts outside of Mbappe, who almost singlehandedly carried them to a repeat championship.
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, Mbappe was listed at +800 to win the honor behind England star Harry Kane. We’ll see how he builds on this run in the coming months, as PSG look to make a Champions League run.
