Kylian Mbappe has continued to prove that he is currently the fastest player in the world. He reminded the world how fast he can be during France’s Euro 2020 opener against Germany on Tuesday, June 15, 2021.
The 22-year-old France international gave a man-of-the-match performance against Germany in the Group F game and proved how important he is to the aspiration of France to win the European Championship.
As expected, Kylian Mbappe made the game so difficult for Germany to the extent he scored a beautiful goal in the 66th minute but the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) disallowed it.

The Paris Saint Germain talisman didn’t stop there, he provided an assist for Karim Benzema in the 85th minute after he made a lightning run to get to a pass from Paul Pogba. Unfortunately for the French team, the VAR canceled the goal.
However, it was not those brilliant moments that caught the attention of football fans across the world. Most of them were thrilled with the lightning run he made in the 77th minute of the game.
Kylian Mbappe created the chance to confirm to the world how fast he could be when he sprinted to a through pass from Pogba, the winner of the man-of-the-match award. Mbappe sprinted so fast that he overtook Garman defender Mats Hummels who was 10-yard ahead of the Frenchman.
The effort Mbappe put in to get to the ball forced football fans at the Allianz Arena in Munich to sit on the edge of their seats. However, Mats Hummels was able to recover the ball from the prolific striker.

At the end of the game, Kylian Mbappe could not get his name on the scoresheet but his performance throughout the game did not go unnoticed. At the time of publishing this report, the world of football has not stopped talking about him.
France’s Euro 2020 opener against Germany ended 1-0 in favor of the French team, thanks to the 20th-minute own goal scored by Mats Hummels.
Meanwhile, before the kick-off of the game, Kylian Mbappe told the press that there was no longer an issue between him and his French teammate, Olivier Giroud.
Recall that the 22-year-old striker told the press that he was affected by Giroud’s comments against his French teammates that he was not getting enough passes from them.
The Paris Saint Germain striker insisted that the argument between him and the Chelsea striker has been forgotten, adding that he and Giroud have a common goal which is to have a successful Euro 2020.
“Of course it’s forgotten,” Mbappe told TF1 ahead of France’s Group F opener against Germany on Tuesday night. “In life, you shouldn’t feel sorry for yourself.
“We have a common goal, and we will need Giroud too.”
