Kylian Mbappe was the star of the show as France beat Argentina 4-3 to make the World Cup quarterfinals, scoring two of the goals for Didier Deschamps' side. 

It was a performance which saw him named man of the match and the 19-year-old forward spoke to beIN Sports after the game. 

"It's a big honour, I feel really good, like the rest of my teammates," he said. "We've built a great team and we played really well today." 

Mbappe's two goals saw him become just the second teenager after Pele to score twice in a World Cup game. 

He added: "I’m very happy, it’s flattering to be second after Pele, but Pele is in another category, let’s put things in context. It’s good to score in World Cup matches." 

France are hoping to win the World Cup for the first time since 1998 -- the year in which Mbappe was born! 

"People remember 1998 for the World Cup victory, more for than the year I was born, obviously that’s what they will remember," he added.
