    Kylian Mbappe has vowed to take France back to the World Cup final after coming up short against Argentina on Sunday.

    Despite becoming just the second player ever to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final, Mbappe and France fell to Argentina in a penalty shoot-out, ending their dreams of retaining the crown they won in 2018.

    The Paris Saint-Germain forward has climbed into sixth on the all-time scoring charts for the World Cup, tied with Brazilian icon Pele on 12 goals and also accomplishing the feat in the same number of games, 14.

    Ahead of Mbappe in the standings are club teammate Lionel Messi and fellow Frenchman Just Fontaine on 13. Fontaine is Les Bleus’ record scorer at the tournament, having bagged all 13 in six games in 1958.
