After starring as France booked a spot in Russia 2018's final by beating Belgium, the teenager said he does not care about the individual prize

Kylian Mbappe says he wants to win the World Cup and is not interested in individual awards such as the Ballon d'Or.

Mbappe starred as France beat Belgium 1-0 in Tuesday's World Cup semi-final , booking a spot against either England or Croatia, creating a great chance for Olivier Giroud with a wonderful backheel pass.

France have not won the tournament since 1998 when they triumphed on home soil, with Mbappe tipped as a possible Golden Ball winner due to his fine performances.

The 19-year-old has also been suggested as a contender for the Ballon d'Or, having become the first teenager since Pele to score more than once in a World Cup game.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Mbappe, though, has his full focus on Russia 2018 as France look to go one step further than their loss in the final of Euro 2016 against Portugal.

"It's unimaginable. It is the dream of a life, of a future life, of everything. I do not have the words," Mbappe said to TF1.

"Even in my biggest dreams I had not imagined that, and yet I am a big dreamer. But it remains a step. 

"When you do not cheat and work for the collective, you are rewarded. As long as I can help the team, it's all that matters to me.
