France star Mbappe earns Caniggia comparison from World Cup icon Maradona


The Argentina legend was frustrated by Marcos Rojo conceding a penalty to Les Bleus' exciting frontman, who reminded him of a former team-mate
France forward Kylian Mbappe's stunning display against Argentina earned a comparison to a young Claudio Caniggia from Diego Maradona.
The Paris Saint-Germain forward showed incredible speed as he drew a foul from Marcos Rojo to earn a penalty that Antoine Griezmann converted, before his double put Les Bleus out of sight in Kazan.
Maradona sees shades of his former Boca Juniors team-mate Caniggia, a World Cup runner-up with Argentina in 1990 and a Copa America champion the following year, in Mbappe.
"Argentina went out to attack France and made the mistake of leaving a lot of room for Mbappe, who is like Caniggia in his early days," he told teleSUR.
