19 year old Mbappe is, unquestionably, the Pavarotti of soccer. He was on the 
cover of Time a few weeks ago. Not an artist? You've never seen him play. But 
aren't we talking about the same thing? 
A player is not always hired for his technical ability. A good eye can find a special, 
unique talent with a flair. One in a million. Soccer fields in France are constantly 
being visited by talent-seekers. And not just top schools. Mbappe was found in a 
poor suburb of Paris. Are music schools getting the same treatment? The lack of 
blacks on opera stages suggests they aren't.
