Mbappé is donating his 2018 FIFA World Cup match salary to charity.

If leading France to a World Cup victory as a teenager wasn’t enough to endear himself to soccer fans globally, Kylian Mbappe’s charisma should certainly do the trick.

According to Sports Illustrated, the French phenom will donate his lucrative World Cup earnings, estimated at £384,000, to the Preiers de Cordees association. The charity seeks to provide children with disabilities opportunities to partake in sports activities.

Across seven World Cup matches, the 19-year-old phenom scored four goals, including a well-placed strike in the 65th minute of the World Cup final to seal France’s 4-2 victory over Croatia.

Mbappe joined Brazilian legend Pelé as the only other teenager in the tournament’s 88-year history to score in a World Cup final.
