Kylian Mbappe Beats Ronaldo, Messi To An Impressive Record

Kylian Mbappe has surpassed the duo of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to an impressive record – most number of goals by the age of 20.

In case you didn't know, Mbappe came to the limelight when he made his professional debut for French outfit Monaco in 2015, where he established himself as a regular goal-scorer for the club, even helping them to their first Ligue 1 title in 17 years, in the 2016/17 season.

Mbappe rose further up the ranks when he moved to Paris Saint-Germain in a transfer that made him the most expensive teenager in football.

The Frenchman won the treble – Ligue 1, Coupe de France, and Coupe de la Ligue – with the side in his debut season.

Internationally, Mbappe played a key role in France’s FIFA World Cup win in Russia over the summer, becoming the youngest French player to score in the competition.

The Paris Saint-Germain star has already achieved so much at just 20 years of age.

Besides winning individual awards like the Kopa trophy, Mbappe has now surpassed the likes of five-time Ballon d'Or winners Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to become the player with the most goals at the age of 20.


According to Fox Sports Asia, the PSG star sits comfortably at the top of the goal-scoring list with 73 goals, followed by Brazilian legend Ronaldo, former Liverpool star Michael Owen, Barcelona ace Lionel Messi, and Juventus talisman Cristiano Ronaldo.

It isn't far-fetched to say that the Frenchman is well on his way to becoming a legend in the game, provided the youngster continues his trail-blazing form.

PSG sit comfortably at the top of the Ligue 1 table and are next scheduled to face Stade Pontivy in the French Cup on January 7.
