Kylian Mbappe Hits Outstanding Volleyed Goal As PSG Power On

Kylian Mbappe Hits Outstanding Volleyed Goal As PSG Power On

Three games into the new Ligue 1 season and Paris St Germain already look to have found their rhythm. Taking on Angers in Paris this evening, World Cup star Kylian Mbappe put his side 2-1 ahead with a wonderful volleyed effort.

Making his first league start for the club since returning as a World Cup winner with France in Russia this summer, Mbappe met an Angel Di Maria cross, executing the effort superbly.

Having taken a 1-0 lead through Edinson Cavani after 12 minutes, PSG were pegged back 10 minutes later when Thomas Mangani converted an Angers penalty.

Falling 1-0 behind to Guingamp a week earlier, PSG were called upon to demonstrate their resolve this afternoon too. Thankfully for Thomas Tuchel's side, Kylian Mbappe duly obliged.

Quickly thereafter, Neymar got in on the act, making it three goals for the French champions' incredibly talented front three.

Turning provider this time, Mbappe made a penetrating run down the right, and, after a quick one-two pass, fed the ball into Neymar for a straight-forward finish.

Looking every inch the player who was so instrumental in helping Didier Deschamps' side lift the World Cup in Moscow, Kylian Mbappe only looks to be getting better.
