‘World Cup is my obsession’

Kylian Mbappe said Sunday he dreamed of winning the World Cup for a second time after his brace helped France to a 3-1 win over Poland which advanced the holders to the quarter-finals in Qatar, reports AFP.

"Of course, this World Cup is an obsession for me, it's the competition of my dreams," said the 23-year-old who burst onto the global stage by starring when France won the title in Russia four years ago. The PSG superstar now has five goals in just four games at the tournament and is already France's WC second-top scorer ever with nine goals in 11 appearances overall.
