Mbappé: 'Dembélé, Martial and I will do even better'

Les Bleus

Kylian Mbappé believes there is better to come from his partnership with Ousmane Dembélé and Anthony Martial after the trio shone in France's win over Russia on Tuesday.

Mbappé scored twice, becoming France's youngest double scorer since 1933, in the 3-1 win over the 2018 FIFA World Cup hosts in St. Petersburg, and started alongside Dembélé and Martial as coach Didier Deschamps left more experienced players like Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud on the bench at kick-off.

With Manchester United's Martial the eldest of the three at just 22, and Barcelona man Dembélé only 20, Mbappé, 19, sees a bright future for them in the national side.

"I'm happy, the most important thing was to win," the Paris Saint-Germain striker said after taking his international tally to three goals in 12 senior appearances. "It's always good to beat records, but I don't go looking for that.

"I played with players it's easy to link up with; it's simple to play with Ousmane and Anthony. We have to work on our understanding, but I think it was a good start."
