For the second time in his career, Kylian Mbappé has set his sights on the FIFA World Cup championship.

The forward for Paris Saint-Germain has been on fire for Les Bleus, scoring five goals in as many games, including a brace against Poland in the round of 16.
The 23-year-old declared with absolute certainty that his team would win the World Cup in Qatar as a result of his goal-scoring prowess.
"My goal now is to win the World Cup." This is my only dream. "That's what I came here for," Mbappé said, as quoted by Football Tweet.
What's next for Mbappé?
Having reached the quarterfinals with France, Mbappé and his French teammates will face England or Senegal in their next assignment.
He has bagged five goals in four games and will look to add to his tally at the Mundial when the quarterfinals kick off.
