FIFA World Cup

Mbappe overtakes Ronaldo and equals Messi World Cup goals tally

France forward Kylian Mbappe overtook Cristiano Ronaldo and equalled Lionel Messi’s World Cup tally of nine goals with a brace in the 3-1 win over Poland in the round of 16 clash.

With another sensational performance at Qatar 2022, French superstar is on pace to become the FIFA World Cup all-time top scorer, getting close to former German striker Miroslav Klose.

Mbappe’s ninth goal for France at World Cup finals has seen him wrestle a record away from Brazil legend Pele.

Mbappe reached nine World Cup goals in just 11 games. That means he surpassed the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo (8), while he tied Lionel Messi who has three more World Cup participations.

Mbappe had scored four goals in his debut World Cup campaign in 2018 when France won the title in Russia.
