Former Super Eagles of Nigeria goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama has tipped Kylian Mbappe to win the Ballon d’or in future following outstanding display, scoring a hat-trick as PSG defeated Barcelona 4-1 in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Enyeama has now heaped praises on Mbappe’s influence and tipped him to take over the Ballon d’or award from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Mbappe became just the second player to net at least twice at Camp Nou in European Cup/Champions League action after Ferenc Puskas did so more than 50 years ago.
He also only third player to score a Champions League hat-trick against the Blaugrana.
Faustino Asprilla did so for Newcastle and Andriy Shevchenko for Dynamo Kyiv (both in 1997).
Mbappe’s pace and finishing proved a constant threat throughout as he left Barça with a mountain to climb ahead of the second leg of the round of 16 tie at the Parc des Princes.
Enyeama wrote on Twitter;
“Mbappe is such a great player. Future ballon d’or. Players like him make goal keeping such a beautiful job. A match day dream.”
The Frenchman’s performance earned him praise from players across Europe, including Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford, Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho and fellow countryman Antoine Griezmann
