19-year-old teen sensation Kylian Mbappe took the 21st edition of the FIFA World Cup by storm, winning the ‘Best Young Player of The Tournament Award’. The Paris Saint-German star also registered history by becoming the youngest footballer to score in the World Cup finals since Brazilian legend, Pele.
French league champions, Paris Saint-Germain welcomed their World Cup-winning stars-Kylian Mbappe, Presnel Kimpembe and Alphonse Areola back in training on Tuesday after an extended break.
The trio underwent routine medical tests on Monday with others who took part in Russia.
After his stellar performance, netting four World Cup goals, Mbappe will now wear the number seven shirt this season, moving up from the number-29 jersey he was given during the last term in his first campaign with the club.
The Number seven jersey holds a special relevance in football, another popular figure donning the number is Kylian Mbappe’s self-claimed idol, Cristiano Ronaldo.
“The number gives an indication of your ambitions, the player that you want to be. It’s a new beginning,” Mbappe said in a video posted by the club on social media.
PSG, who beat Monaco 4-0 in the Champions Trophy in China at the weekend, kick off their quest for a sixth French title in seven years at home to Caen on Sunday.
