The former Monaco forward made his Les Bleus debut in March last year, and opened his account on the international stage just months later in a match against the Netherlands.
Mbappe's rise to the top has been swift but somewhat unsurprising following his excellent breakthrough season with Monaco.
After joining PSG on an initial loan deal that will be made permanent at the end of this campaign, the forward has continued to take his game to new heights.
The player scored an impressive brace in France's 3-1 win over Russia in an international friendly on Tuesday, setting the record as the youngest player to score a double for Les Bleus post-war.
The 19-year-old has already scored 46 goals in 96 first team games for both Monaco and PSG, while he has also assisted 31 strikes.
On the international stage, Mbappe has now struck three times in 12 matches for France, and has set up a further four goals.
