Thierry Henry praises Kylian Mbappe’s 300-goal milestone and why criticism of the France captain is so harsh

France legend Thierry Henry has praised Kylian Mbappe, anticipating that the young forward will continue to achieve new milestones after scoring his 300th career goal.

Kylian Mbappe secured a hat-trick against Gibraltar, contributing to Les Bleus’ commanding 14-0 victory, which stands as the largest win in European Championship qualifying history. Notably, his third goal—a remarkable 40-yard chip over the goalkeeper—marked his 300th career goal.

Mbappe is edging closer to France’s all-time top goalscoring record, currently standing at 46 goals for his country. This achievement places him third on the list, with only Henry (51) and Olivier Giroud (56) ahead of him in the rankings.

With Mbappe closing in on his mark, Henry claimed after the game that the forward has the ability to keep finding the net: “What this little one does is not nothing. It’s just incredible […] the problem is when you are so good, people often see when you miss or when you’re not good. We expect a lot of him, but he should just not have been so good! Joking aside, let’s be happy that he is French. How high can he go? 1000. I’m overdoing it, but honestly, it is Kylian that decides.”
