KYLIAN MBAPPE left fans speechless when he pulled off an incredible backheel assist during France's 4-0 win over Iceland.
The Paris Saint-Germain star stole the show for Les Bleus amid claims Real Madrid are plotting a world record bid for him.
OH MY GOD, that backhell assist from Mbappe is super special, brilliant from the PSG forward and Griezmann with a class finish. 4-0 to France against Iceland. 2 assists from Mbappe and that says that he’s more than just a goal scorer. #FRAICE pic.twitter.com/dRZ1cuvKA4 — footballnews (@footynews34) March 25, 2019
Mbappe made it 3-0 to France after earlier strikes from Samuel Umtiti and Olivier Giroud.
But it was his assist for Antoine Griezmann's late effort that has got everybody talking on social media.
The ball fell to the 20-year-old's feet inside of Iceland's half, but he had his back towards the goal.
Instead of taking the safe option, Mbappe decided to prove why he is being linked with a £240m summer switch.
He confidently pulled out out a backheel pass - which fell perfectly into the path of the Atletico Madrid forward.
Griezmann charged into the box and chipped the ball over the keeper to make it 4-0 to the 2018 World Cup winners.
Fans on social media could not believe their eyes after Mbappe's moment of magic during the Euro 2020 qualifier.
One said: "Oh my god, that backheel assist from Mbappe is super special."
While another added: "Oh f****** hell I've just seen Mbappe's assist for Griezmann and I might cry."
Mbappe made history during the match as he became the youngest player to reach 30 appearances for Les Bleus.
The 20-year-old is six months younger than Karim Benzema was when he reached the milestone in 2010.
