France legend, Theirry Henry has backed compatriot Kylian Mbappe to hit new heights after he netted his 300th career goal.
With Mbappe closing in on his mark, Henry claimed after the game that the forward has the ability to keep finding the net.
He said: “What this little one does is not nothing. It’s just incredible […] the problem is when you are so good, people often see when you miss or when you’re not good.
“We expect a lot of him, but he should just not have been so good! Joking aside, let’s be happy that he is French. How high can he go? 1000. I’m overdoing it, but honestly, it is Kylian that decides.”
Mbappe grabbed a hat-trick as Les Bleus
hammered Gibraltar 14-0 last weekend.
It was the biggest win in European Championship qualifying history.
Mbappe’s third strike, a 40-yard chip of the goalkeeper, brought up goal number 300 for the forward’s career.
