Mbappe is a little different though; he showed an incredible level of skill for someone who is only 19. He certainly appears to be better than Neymar was at that age and probably Ronaldo. Is he better than Messi was at 19?
None of you watched Mbappe at Monaco? At 17-18 years of age he led that team to champions league semi finals. He was best player on the field in every game up to the semifinals.

I never thought James was a top 20 player. Even after magical World Cup. This young man is different. He’s special in every aspect of the game. When he took the ball in defensive third against Argentina and ran past their entire team to earn a penalty kick (where griezmann got another goal) you couldn’t help but laugh.

Perhaps, but people were really jumping on his bandwagon after that WC. He was supposed to go to Real Madrid, be a world class player for them, and be a prominent face of the game behind Ronaldo and Messi. He's been good, but it hasn't quite gone like that.

I agree that Mbappe does appear to have something more about him than James did, mostly because he's only 19. He isn't 23 - 25 and showing this kind of skill; he's 19. Plus he's playing in Ligue 1 for big time teams while Neymar was still playing for Santos in Brazil at that age.
