Mbappe completed his hat-trick during extra-time when France were a goal behind Argentina.
The French forward became the second player to net a hat-trick in a World Cup final. Before Mbappe, England’s Geoff Hurst was the last player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final.
Hurst achieved the historic feat in the 1966 edition of the World Cup. “Many congratulations to Mbappe, whatever happens. I’ve had a great run!,” Hurst lauded Mbappe on Twitter.
Mbappe won the race for the Golden Boot at the FIFA World Cup 2022 as the French forward defeated Messi to finish the tournament as its top scorer.
The 23-year-old surpassed Messi by scoring a sensational hat-trick in the FIFA World Cup 2022 final. Messi’s PSG teammate Mbappe scored 8 goals at the Qatar World Cup.
