Buffon: Mbappe is capable of true greatness.



Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has heaped praise on France star Kylian Mbappe - who became the second teenager to score in a World Cup final.

World Cup winner Mbappe will soon become one of football's true legend, according to former Juve shotstopper Buffon.

"When I spoke [after the match] with Andrea Barzagli, who is one of my great friends, he told me 'Gigi, in 20 years of my career I have rarely seen a player run so fast with the ball, I had a hard time stopping him'," the Italian told PSG's official club magazine.

"These words are not insignificant because Barzagli, when he is focused and fit, is really a top defender.

"It's obvious [Mbappe] has something more than others. I hope he will remain humble and keep this desire to progress and make sacrifices.

"If so, he will make a mark in the history of football and write incredible pages of the sport."
