CBS Sports have showed the moment where pundits Henry, Carragher and Micah Richards exploded in celebration when Mbappe found the back of the net.
Henry shouts ‘yes’ in celebration at his countryman scoring, while Carragher banged the studio’s table and Richards shouted: ‘Kylian, what did I tell you?’
After PSG’s first-leg victory, Henry said: ‘This is the type of player… the other day I was speaking to a friend of mine and I was like “there’s not many people who will make me jump out of my seat or make me scream”.
‘This is what you want to see, this is why you put your TV on cause you want to see people unlocking something.
‘I always go on about 1v1, all the time coach tells you “the ball has to go there, the ball has to go there, you have to pull it back, switch it”. What happened to instinct?
‘What happened to 1v1? And this guy has plenty of it. Let him play, let us enjoy it, but what a night, what a goal and I’m sure it won’t be the last.’
