Kylian Mbappe continues to set the football world on fire and on Wednesday night it was Bayern Munich who were on the wrong side of another sparkling offensive from the PSG superstar.
The Frenchman, who is still just 22, has scored twice as the Ligue 1 side produced a brilliant performance to beat the Champions League holders 3-2 at the Allianz Arena.
Mbappe got his first after just five minutes as Manuel Neuer failed to deflect his shot from goal.
The second came with just over 20 minutes to go as he fired a venomous shot in the lower corner just inside the area.
And it’s fair to say that Micah Richards and Jamie Carragher enjoyed Mbappe’s goals as they watched them from CBS Sports studio.
Richards and Carragher went totally mad after the goal and the former then brilliantly recreated Mbappe’s signature arms crossed celebration.
You can watch the pair’s brilliant reaction, below …

In an explosive start to the first leg, the visitors made their way after just three minutes when Mbappe threw a shot into the legs of Manuel Neuer after Neymar selflessly chose him at the end of a counterattack quick.
Thomas Muller missed a glorious leveling opportunity in the 10th minute when he stabbed his shot straight at goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who made fine saves to quickly deny Leon Goretzka and Benjamin Pavard as Bayern tried to retaliate .
The starters, who lacked injured 42-goal striker Robert Lewandowski, were in big trouble after 28 minutes when Neymar’s ball over the summit gave Marquinhos control before shooting past helpless Neuer.
However, former PSG striker Choupo-Moting, who had hit the crossbar seconds before the opening goal, brought the home side back nine minutes later with a firm header down from Pavard’s cross.
Neuer came part of the way to redeem himself with a life-saving point-blank range from Neymar six minutes after the restart, but his counterpart Navas had to save from David Alaba and Pavard in seconds as the Germans returned with renewed vigor.
They got their reward as Thomas Muller clocked his run and jumped perfectly to meet Joshua Kimmich’s free kick before guiding a header past Navas to tie it at 2-2.
But the French champions took the lead in eight minutes. Neymar played Mbappe behind the Bayern defense and, as substitute Jerome Boateng arrived to face him, the forward shot in the defender’s legs and passed Neuer.
