Former Ghana youth international Awudu Issaka has named French teenager Kylian Mbappe Moting as the best player in the ongoing 2018 World Cup.

The 1995 Under 17 World Cup winner is convinced that the 19-year-old attacker is high above his peers at the Mundial and he has a bright future ahead of him.

“Mbappe is the best player so far at this world cup, he is a talent, he has great speed, can dribble and also can score goals.” Issaka told Happy FM

“You can also see that he is a humble young guy, he was brought up very well and I can see a bright future ahead of him,”

Awudu Issaka who is arguably the best ball juggler Ghana has ever seen over the past two and half decades also cautioned Mbappe to try and release balls early to avoid being a trget of rough play.

“I will urge him not to stay too much on the ball because opponents can deliberately injure him, he should release balls early and use his speed to move to empty spaces as he did against Argentina.”

Mbappe who is gunning for the best young player at this year’s world cup has netted three goals in the three games he has played so far.

He is expected to play a key role in France game against Urugay this afternoon.
