MOSCOW, Dhu-AlQa'dah 02, 1439, July 15, 2018, SPA -- Sliding across the rain-soaked turf holding the World Cup trophy tight, teenager Kylian Mbappe and the rest of France's players acted like the youthful bunch they are, according to AP.
The 19-year-old Mbappe became only the second teen after Pele to score in a World Cup final, helping France beat Croatia 4-2 on Sunday.
"I don't really realize yet what it is. The World Cup, it's a lot," forward Antoine Griezmann said. "I'm very proud of this team."
The only other teen to score in a World Cup final was Pele, who was 17 when Brazil beat Sweden 5-2 in 1958.
