France-Chile: second best passer of the Blues, Mbappé joins Henry and gets closer to Griezmann

Kylian Mbappé will undoubtedly end his career as the top scorer and best passer in the history of the France team. And, given the pace he is keeping, it is especially likely that he will not wait until he approaches retirement to glean these two prestigious statuses. This Tuesday evening, while the Blues host Chile in a friendly match at the Vélodrome stadium in Marseille, the captain of the Blues delivered (already) his 27th assist in the Rooster jersey.

A subtle shift for Youssouf Fofana, which allowed the Monegasque to arm a shot from outside the area which deceived Claudio Bravo. With this extra pass on the clock, Kylian Mbappé therefore has 27 in his career in Blue: that’s as many as Thierry Henry, second in the ranking, and one more than Zinédine Zidane, whom he now leaves in his rearview mirror.

He only has three offerings left to give to catch up with the leader of this ranking, Antoine Griezmann, who has 30. He reached this total in 144 caps, Thierry Henry had reached 27 in 123 caps. At 25 years old, Kylian Mbappé has, since this Tuesday evening, only 77. In as many matches, he has also reached the staggering total of 46 goals, which makes him the 3rd best scorer in the history of the Blues behind Thierry Henry, precisely (51) and Olivier Giroud (56).
