They are calling it the greatest World Cup final ever.

It is hard to disagree.

Kylian Mbappe won the Golden Boot award after scoring a hat trick for France in their World Cup final defeat against Argentina on Sunday.

Mbappe scored his sixth, seventh and eighth goals of the 2022 tournament to take his total to 12 in the competition overall.

He edged out Argentina forward Lionel Messi, who scored twice in the final himself, and ended the World Cup with seven goals as well as being handed the Golden Ball as the tournament’s best player.

Mbappe scored his first of the tournament in France’s opening game, a 4-1 win against Australia. He then scored both in a 2-1 win against Denmark but did not get on the scoresheet in the 1-0 defeat to Tunisia.
