History comes naturally to French footballer Kylian Mbappe. The forward is the youngest-ever to score a goal for AS Monaco, the youngest-ever scorer in a European club semi-final, and the youngest to be nominated for football’s greatest individual prize, among other honors. The 19-year-old racked up another accolade as the youngest French goalscorer in World Cup history. But age is only a number for Mbappe, as he describes in the Nike Football film, “Too Young”.
“On your back, there’s a number, not your age” says Mbappe as he’s surrounded by the French flag and the chants of his home nation. “Either the player can play or he can’t.”
Coming off the heels of back-to-back World Cup victories for the French team, Mbappe is once again primed to defy his age – and establish his legacy.
