FIFA World Cup All-Time Hat-Tricks: Mbappe Becomes Second Finalist in 2022

France’s Kylian Mbappe gave the best performance of his life in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 final on December 18 (Japan time 19). Although he lost to Lionel Messi’s Argentina, he single-handedly scored three goals to take the match to penalties.

With a sensational volley in the 82nd minute and two penalties, Mbappe made World Cup history.

If you score one goal, you might be lucky. 2 goals is skill. What about 3 goals? It’s already a legend.

Kylian Mbappe scores hat-trick in World Cup final

Mbappe calmly scored the penalty in the 81st minute to score France’s first goal. It was a goal that grazed the hand stretched out by GK Emiliano Martinez. Martinez touched the ball with his fingertips but couldn’t stop Mbappe’s effort.

FIFA World Cup All-Time Hat-Tricks

If Mbappe’s first goal was luck, the second was a special. He volleyed the floating ball cleanly and stabbed it into the bottom right corner of the goal to tie the score at 2-2. It was a spectacular shot that will never be forgotten in Mbappe’s illustrious career.

Mbappe capped his historic performance with another penalty in the 117th minute. After scoring in the bottom left corner of the goal, Mbappe happily made his way to the corner flag.

Hat-trick in the World Cup Final

With his hat-trick, Mbappe has confirmed that he is one of the greatest talents in football history. He became the second player in history to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final.

The first player probably needs no introduction, especially in England. Jeff Hurst scored a hat-trick in the 1966 final to lead football’s home country to its first and so far only championship.

The players who scored two goals in the World Cup final

Mbappe is not the only player who has made his mark in football history. His club teammate Lionel Messi also became the eighth player to score twice in a World Cup final. All eight players are holding trophies.
