France players, legends and football pundits heaped praise on emerging superstar Kylian Mbappe after the 19-year-old eclipsed Lionel Messi in a match that felt like the passing of a torch to a new generation.
"That is good - it is a great competition", Mbappe said of the statistic.
This is perhaps best highlighted by the fact that so many English supporters had no idea that the players were so generous with their participation money. The youngster fired his nation ahead before putting the final nail in Argentina's coffin minutes later, and the 19-year-old could have had several more goals if not for his misguided selflessness at times.
"I agree that they need to show consistency and carry on with their development and I hope they use and trust their natural talent, which can take them forward. It's flattering for me, but it won't stop me from working hard and, above all, going as far as possible in this World Cup".

Pavard has been suddenly elevated to the role of first-choice right-back in Didier Deschamps' side, the latest successor to Thuram in that position, due to Djibril Sidibé's fitness problems.
"It is a really good thing for him. It was a nice reward for me and everybody who has ever believed in me - I thank my teammates for their trust".
This World Cup is Mbappe's first major tournament for Les Bleus, having made his debut for Didier Deschamps' side in March past year.
Cavani, who forms a unsafe front-line pairing alongside Luis Suarez, later limped off, helped by Ronaldo, sparking fears for his World Cup future. "We must not expect that much from him in the quarter-finals, because Uruguay will be ready for him", said Griezmann.

Others said that England skipper Kane would also not approve of his image being used in such a way. You'd have to take that as an England fan , right? " Prediction: Colombia 1-2 England AET".
According to L'Equipe, the 19-year-old feels that he should not be paid for representing his country, and has made a decision to give the money to the Preiers de Cordees association, which organises sports activities for children with disabilities.
Later in Sochi, Ronaldo - who started the World Cup with a hat-trick against Spain - was powerless to prevent Portugal slipping out of the tournament as Edinson Cavani scored twice in a 2-1 win to send the European champions home.
"He is young, and young players really enjoy themselves when the standard of the opposition increases".
That amounts to £17,000-per-game ($22,455) (plus bonuses on top) and according to French daily L'Equipe, Mbappe is giving away the lot.
