Mbappe scored both goals like this
Embape passed the ball inside the box to Giroud, who scored a record goal with a superb left-footed shot to put France ahead 1-0. Giroud passed to Dembélé who headed it to Mbappe, who fired a powerful right-footed shot into the Polish box. Embape then showed another magic and scored his second goal in the match. Thuram’s pass took his World Cup goal tally to nine. Poland’s team reached the knockout round for the first time in 36 years. The consolation goal for him came in the 99th minute from a penalty for a ‘handball’ infringement. During the match, the referee also removed the gold chain of Jules Conde who was playing wearing it.
