Golden Ball favourite Kylian Mbappe has truly announced himself on the international stage during the World Cup.
While punters with even a passing interest in either French or European football will know what the 19-year-old has done from Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain, this has been Mbappe’s first major tournament with Les Blues.
He’s delivered in spades too, with three goals plus key contributions in several devastating performances and is sure to be a popular option to strike in Moscow.
Anyone wishing the back Mbappe to open the scoring when France take on Croatia should consider doing so at dabblebet.
The online bookmaker are going 11/2 (6.50) about this wager, that’s a standout best price with the best quote elsewhere being 5/1 (6.0) at the time of writing.

The condition of Croatia’s defence has surely got to be a positive for backers of this bet too. Three sets of extra time throughout the knockout stages can’t be a positive against a player with such searing pace and power.
Mbappe made the breakthrough as France beat Peru 1-0 in the group stages and could well have notched the first goal against Argentina had Marcos Rojo not brought him down in the area.
Antoine Griezmann stepped up to convert the spot kick but the 19-year-old notched twice more against the South Americans in a stunning 4-3 victory. What’s more, he seem to be growing in confidence and will surely relish the opportunity to demonstrate his talents on the biggest international stage of all.
Tied with Griezmann as Les Blues’ leading marksman this summer, Mbappe looks a worth first scorer selection, especially at this enhanced price of 11/2 (6.50) with dabblebet.
