Camavinga fell to his feet both due to his quick scoring contribution to the team and the good game shown during his first game, despite the fact that nerves played a trick on him in some actions. However, breaking records is not something strange for him, considering that in France he has already broken several historical records.

That same year (2019), he achieved the unprecedented milestone of being awarded as the best player of the month in the Flirt 1. No one had ever done it at his age.

Everyone expects him to keep breaking records at Real Madrid.
