Kylian Mbappe has enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence this season after firing Monaco to the top of Ligue 1 and into the Champions League quarter-finals.
The 18-year-old's hot form earned him a call into Didier Deschamps' France squad for their upcoming internationals against Luxembourg and Spain and, despite being one of seven forwards picked, Mbappe has every chance of a debut cap over the next fortnight.
Such is the speed with which he has gathered international recognition the Monaco man is yet to play for his country at Under 21 or Under 20 levels. Back in November Mbappe was only named in the Under 19 squad.

The Parisian-born starlet seems to be taking it all in his stride. He looked relaxed as he arrived at the Clairefontaine national training base on Monday morning, waving to the cameras before checking in.
Dimitri Payet has done enough on his return to Marseille to keep his place in Deschamps squad for the World Cup qualifier in Luxembourg and following friendly against Spain in Paris.
However, the former West Ham star arrived for duty looking like he is still in the process of decorating his house in the south of France. From the waist up the 29-year-old appeared smart enough in a shirt and jacket combo, but his jeans were torn and covered in spots of paint.
Although Payet was by no means the only offender in the Clairefontaine car park on Monday morning, Florian Thauvin's lack of socks a case in point.

In contrast, Mbappe's choice of Nike tracksuit, with matching cap and trainers was relatively sedate.
Mercifully, Deschamps does not make his selections based on fashion choices. He had no qualms about calling up Mbappe despite his inexperience.
Speaking in the wake of the starlet's selection, the France boss said: 'Kylian has made the squad because he has shown over the past few months that he has the quality. Quality has no age.

'Everyone will ask if this is the right moment, but I am looking forward to seeing him with the group, he has a very specific skillset.
'Other youngsters have walked this path before him and I think this is the right moment for him.
'What makes him such a strong player, apart from his ability, is the way he always remains calm. That is very rare for someone his age.'
