Kylian Mbappe scored a stunning solo goal for France vs Austria on Thursday evening.
Les Bleus went into the game winless in this season’s Nations League campaign and in serious danger of relegation from League 1 Group A.
France were dominant in the first half at Stade de France but could not find a way past an inspired Patrick Pentz.
The deadlock was finally broken by Mbappe in the 56th minute – and he did so in some style.
The PSG star picked the ball up roughly 40 yards from Austria’s goal.
He drove at Austria’s defence, jinked inside past a number of opponents, and then unleashed a powerful effort that found its way into the net.
It was a moment of pure brilliance from Mbappe and you can view it below…
