CdF: Mbappé hits club-record FIVE as PSG maul minnows

Kylian Mbappé set yet another record on Monday night as he became the first PSG player to hit five goals in an official match when the capital club elapsed minnows Pays de Cassel (D6) 7-0 in their Coupe de France round of 32 clash in Lens.

Although Paris Saint-Germain were comfortable favourites to impose their five-division advantage over Pays de Cassel, and although he has made habit of breaking records, Kylian Mbappé's performance was still nothing less than remarkable.

The dam breaks

Pays de Cassel managed to keep PSG and Mbappé at bay for close to a half-hour before Mbappé struck his first, but the Boy from Bondy had completed a hat-trick by half-time and added another two in the second half which, added to strikes from Neymar (from an Mbappé assist!) and Carlos Soler, took the total to seven goals.

The record haul also saw Mbappé close in on Edinson Cavani's all-time scoring record for the club - which stands at 200 goals in all competitions - by taking his tally to 196.

There is clearly no stopping this young man!
