If his breathtaking performances in 2018 FIFA World Cup were not enough to prove his mettle, Kylian Mbappe on Sunday showcased his enormous quality against Olympique Lyon by netting four sensational goals in the space of just 13 minutes.

Bruno Genesio's side threw away their man advantage, though, as Lucas Tousart was dismissed, and after missing a string of chances, the sensational Mbappe capped an virtuoso display by scoring 4 times in 13 minutes to seal history for PSG.

L'Equipe newspaper summed it up with a picture of Mbappe celebrating one of his goals in Neymar's arms with the headline: "Here, it's Mbappe", a reference to PSG's motto "Ici, c'est Paris", which translates as "Here, it's Paris".

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that A Nigerian lady seems to have an unresolved beef with French footballer Kylian Mbappe. "It was super hard in the first half, it was a insane match". Mbappe has taken his total goal scoring tally to 8 in the league, this season.

He completed his hat-trick in the 69th minute after Neymar sent him clear of the defence and he ran on to finish emphatically.

France's forward Kylian Mbappe (2R) celebrates with teammates after scoring his team's fourth goal during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup round of 16 football match between France and Argentina at the Kazan Arena in Kazan on June 30, 2018.

Former Barcelona forward Neymar arrived in Paris as PSG's star man but he has company at Parc des Princes, where Mbappe continues to shine. PSG's Kimpembe was given a red card after a rough challenge in the 35th minute of the game.

Neymar then turned provider for a second time as he put the 19-year-old clean through, with golkeeper Anthony Lopes beaten by an arrowing shot from 18 yards.

Mbappe has since made amends. The Brazilian played in Meunier who had his shot blocked by the goalkeeper as the ball fell back to Mbappe. "We see in each of his matches the potential that he has, he exploits it every time, even if he is only 19".
