France striker Kylian Mbappe reckons Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele is the best young player in the world after he scored in France’s 3-1 win over Italy on Friday.

Dembele curled home France’s third goal of the night with a brilliant finish after Samuel Umtiti and Antoine Griezmann had also scored.

The Barcelona star looks to be developing a great relationship with Mbappe in the France attack and the PSG star was full of praise for his team-mate after the game.

“For me, Ousmane Dembélé is the best young player in the world.”
