Has Kylian Mbappe won the Euros? France star’s games, goals and overall record in UEFA European Championship

France are among the favourites to emerge as the kings of Europe this summer as Les Bleus compete in Germany for Euro 2024.

On the back of losing out to Argentina in an epic 2022 FIFA World Cup final, Didier Deschamps’ side are looking to bounce back and secure another major title, with talisman Kylian Mbappe wearing the captain’s armband.

Mbappe has dominated headlines since the start of 2024. His long-awaited free transfer to Real Madrid, after opting to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the domestic campaign, has been discussed and analysed for weeks on end.

However, Mbappe’s sole attention for the coming weeks will be on his national side, as he aims to lead France to glory ahead of likely rivals Germany and England.

Has Kylian Mbappe won the Euros?

A European Championship title is not on Mbappe’s list of achievements, despite the player winning a string of domestic honours at PSG, and the World Cup with France in 2018, before scoring a hat-trick in the final four years later.

His move to Real Madrid is heavily motivated by a desire to win the UEFA Champions League and he will be pushing for continental supremacy with France in the days ahead.

France have won the European Championship twice in their history, firstly as hosts in 1984, and again in 2000 as part of a ‘double’ with the 1998 World Cup.

Kylian Mbappe games and goals record at the European Championship

Mbappe made his France senior debut in March 2017 and he went on to score four goals as France lifted the World Cup in Russia in 2018.

However, his European Championship record is less eye-catching, as he failed to score at Euro 2020, despite starting all four France games at the tournament.

Deschamps’ team lost out on penalties to Switzerland at the Round of 16 stage with Mbappe missing the decisive spot-kick.

Despite suffering a broken nose in the opening game against Austria, Mbappe finally put that record right when he scored a penalty in France’s game with Poland on June 25 in the Group D finale, to get off the mark at Euros finals.
