PSG Star Kylian Mbappé wins the World Cup golden boot with 8 goals, beating Lionel Messi to the honour.

Messi and Mbappé started the match on 5 goals each and were both in the race for the golden boot award.

The Argentine captain first half penalty put him on six goals at this tournament, which would have been enough to secure the Golden Boot.

However, Kylian Mbappé had other plans, scoring an 80th minute penalty to equal Messi on six goals, before a stunning finish from the 23-year-old just 97 seconds later completed a stunning comeback and snatched the Golden Boot away from Messi.

Messi scored again in extra-time to draw level with Mbappé, only for the French golden boy to score a second penalty to complete his hat-trick and claim the Golden Boot outright.

Mbappé broke multiple records with his goals in the final.

Mbappé became the first player since Brazil’s Vavá in 1958 and 1962 to score in back-to-back World Cup finals.

He is the first player to score a brace in a World Cup final since Brazilian Ronaldo in 2002 and the first to score a hat-trick in a World Cupfinal since England’s Geoff Hurst in 1966.

The 23-year-old is on the right path to breaking Miroslav Klose record for most World Cup goals (16), having already scored 12.
