Kylian Mbappe: France star donates World Cup bonus to charity

France slayed the naysayers Saturday afternoon in Kazan with a 4-3 triumph over Argentina.

According to L'Equipe, Mbappe will be donating the entirety of his World Cup earnings to the Preiers de Cordees association, a charity that aims to organize sports activities for children with disabilities.

The lightning-quick 19-year-old hadn't merely played the game of his life in the middle of the World Cup.

Kylian Mbappe has been widely praised for his decision to give his all of his match fees to charity this summer. For a 17-year-old, Arsenal decided not to continue the conversation because there's always a risk.

Mbappe turned down Chelsea and Liverpool, but could have easily been an Arsenal player.

Ronaldo tore out of the blocks in Russian Federation, smashing a hat-trick in his first game against Spain and he added another goal in the 1-0 win against Morocco.

"At a World Cup you have all the top level players so it is an opportunity to show what you can do and what you're abilities are".

The donation will include the reported £265,000 bonus that the star is in line to earn should France win the tournament.

On his part, the player was delighted with his performance, observing that he was thrilled to help his side book a spot in the quarter-finals. Kylian is only the second teenager to ever score multiple goals in a World Cup knockout match.

Mbappe is now the hottest teenager on the planet, as he continues to shine at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.
