He will not have much to blame himself for in this 2022 World Cup. With eight goals scored in seven games played, Kylian Mbappé finishes top scorer in this Qatari World Cup.
A small consolation prize for the Parisian striker, author of a hat-trick this Sunday in the final against Argentina despite the defeat of the Blues on penalties (3-3 / 4 tab).
Consoled after the meeting by President Emmanuel Macron on the lawn of Lusail Stadium, Kylian Mbappé, his eyes filled with disappointment, still achieved a grandiose autumn in the gas emirate.

To his three goals of the day, we must add a double against Poland in the round of 16 (3-1), two goals against Denmark in the group stage (2-1) and one against Australia in the Entry into the running of the Blues (4-1).
An insane total of eight goals, therefore, in a single edition.
Enough to equal the score established by the Brazilian Ronaldo during the 2002 World Cup, won by the Seleção in Japan.
Four lengths behind Klose, the top scorer in the history of the World Cup
Already a four-time scorer at the Russian World Cup in 2018, Kylian Mbappé has 12 goals in the most prestigious of competitions for almost 24 years.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker therefore has all the cards in hand to eventually become the top French scorer in World Cup history.
Only Just Fontaine is ahead of him by a short head with 13 achievements.
The best total in the history of the competition is also largely achievable for Kylian Mbappé.
The record is currently held by German striker Miroslav Klose, who scored 16 times during the high mass of world football.
Given his young age, Mbappé can reasonably imagine playing at least two more World Cups, except for injuries of course.
In Qatar, the French crack will have more than lived up to the event and once again splashed the football planet with his immense talent.
But in the end, it was Lionel Messi's Argentina - 6 goals in this World Cup - who lifted the Cup.
