Thierry Henry will cry, Mbappé aims for 70 goals with France

Scorer Friday in Austria, Kylian Mbappé should play this Monday with the France team against Croatia. The opportunity for the PSG striker to increase his goal counter in the jersey of the Blues.

Thierry Henry is still the top scorer in the history of the France team with his 51 achievements in 123 international meetings. And if the former Arsenal player is under direct threat from Olivier Giroud (48 goals), the latter will probably not have a lot of chances to score in the jersey of the Blues. Even if Antoine Griezmann (42 goals) and Karim Benzema (37 goals) can slightly believe it, it is obviously Kylian Mbappé who seems destined to succeed Thierry Henry. Even if the Paris Saint-Germain striker has scored “only” 27 goals, he is only 23 years old and he is smashing the records for precocity. At his age, Henry had scored 8 times in the French jersey…and Olivier Giroud not once. In other words, Hurricane Mbappé has not finished blowing on world football, to the delight of French supporters, who hope that this will be the case in particular this winter during the World Cup in Qatar. Regarding the limits of the Parisian player, former players believe that they are at an enormous level.

Mbappé power 70 goals, and why not more?

Speaking in Le Parisien a few hours from France-Croatia, Steve Marlet, former star scorer of Lyon and Marseille, author of 6 goals with the Blues, has a relatively precise idea of ​​the score that can be reached Kylian Mbappé with the France team. “ Kylian has a rising trajectory and continues to progress. Each year he is better and breaks the records of the previous season (…) He is as effective with the Blues as with PSG. Modern football is not the same as it was 20 or 30 years ago. To be on the base of these people who have made records and even be on the way to breaking them is an exceptional performance. He can reach 60-70 goals, or even more. It’s just amazing! “, announces, with real admiration, Steve Marlet. Thierry Henry therefore still has a few seasons to enjoy his place as number 1, but he has to get used to it, Kylian Mbappé will erase him from the shelves.
