A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

Kylian Mbappe is a French professional footballer who functions as a centre-forward or as a winger for Paris Saint-Germain and the France national team. He is currently considered by many as one of the most prolific strikers in world football due to his excellent goal-scoring record in both club and international football.

The France international has managed to catch the eye for both his club and country this season but recently suffered disappointment after failing to help France beat Argentina in the final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup despite scoring a hattrick in that game. The 24-year-old has banged in 20 goals and secured five assists in 22 matches for the French club this season across all competitions.

Mbappe has been a consistent performer for PSG in the final third as he is averaging 4.3 shots, 1.8 key passes and 1.9 dribbles per 90 minutes in Ligue 1. He has even been tidy when distributing the ball in the opponent’s half based on his pass success rate of 83.7% in the top tier of French football (stats via whoscored).

What Is Kylian Mbappe’s Speed?

Mbappe has proven his worth as one of the quickest forwards in French football. He holds the honour of recording the fastest run time in the first half of this Ligue 1 campaign. The Frenchman deserves a lot of credit for putting up a top speed of 36 km/h (22.4 mph)

Mbappe was also the eighth-fastest player in the 2022 FIFA World Cup group stages which was held in Qatar recently. He did well to clock up an average top speed of 35.2km/h (via The Athletic).
