Watch: Monaco youngster Kylian Mbappe delivers again with super individual goal against Caen

Michael Plant

Teenage superstar Kylian Mbappe, proved once again why he is one of the most coveted players in European football, with a super goal against Caen on Sunday. 

Following on from his brace against Manchester City in the Champions League last week, Mbappe once again registered two goals in a 3-0 league win against Caen.


The highlight of the game was the 18-year-old's opening strike for the Ligue 1 pace setters. 

Following a long ball down the field, Mbappe performed a one-two with his teammate, before dribbling past a Caen defender, to smash the ball into the net with his left foot.

Mbappe has scored 19 goals so far for Monaco this season and has been linked with moves to Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.


The striker has also been rewarded with a first call-up to the French national squad.

Mbappe has previously represented the U19 side and has registered seven goals in 11 appearances for the team. 

Likened to a young Thierry Henry, Mbappe only made his debut last year for Monaco.

Sunday's 3-1 victory helped maintain Les Monégasques' three-point lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table.


Monaco could be set to win their first title since 1999/00, and have impressed Europe's elite with their ability to produce high-quality young players, such as Mbappe. 

Leonardo Jardim's side face a tough draw in the quarter-final of the Champions League, having drawn German outfit Dortmund.

However, Monaco do have the added advantage of playing the second leg at home, something which helped them defeat Manchester City in the previous round.
