With his goal against Andorra this Tuesday, Kylian Mbappe reached 100 career-goals in record time at the tender age of 20 years-old.

We just reported how France defeated Andorra with another stellar performance from Kylian Mbappe, the French youngster reached 100 career-goals in record time.

There are very few players in football history who reached this number of goals before they even turned 21 years old, not even Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo had these stats at the same age.

This new record gives Kylian Mbappe a different dimension compared to the rest of the players in football history.

There are only a handful of legends who reached these numbers and one star who is still active but has dramatically dropped his level of performance in recent years.

We pray to the football gods that Kylian Mbappe doesn’t drop his level and he can break every record known to the football world.

At the age of 20, Kylian Mbappe’s accomplishments can be listed and already leave people in awe of his incredible talent.

According to WhoScored, Kylian Mbappe scored 27 goals for AS Monaco, he has already scored 60 goals for PSG, and he just scored his 13th goal for the France National Team.

Mbappe has also provided a total of 58 assists in the 180 matches he’s played in all competitions for his clubs and his country.

Mbappe’s age is the key to everything.

If you look at his stats alone without looking at anything else, you could easily mistake Kylian Mbappe with a seasoned veteran of the game.

This player has already taken over the French Ligue 1 in only three years.

He won the domestic competition during his third season for AS Monaco, he also won the two next tournaments when he moved to PSG.

Kylian has been recognized as the Ligue 1’s Young Players of the year in the last three seasons, and he also won the Ligue 1’s MVP Award in the tournament that just finished.

Kylian also won the Ligue 1’s Golden Shoe after scoring 33 goals in the domestic tournament alone.

That’s not all, Mbappe also won the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue once. This means that the youngster already conquered France and he wants more.

If that wasn’t enough, this amazing player also won the FIFA World Cup at the age of 19.

Mbappe scored a goal in the final against Croatia and became the first teenager to do this since Pele did it back in the 1958 World Cup.

The only difference between Kylian Mbappe and the Brazilian legend, is that Edson Arantes do Nascimento won the World Cup when he was only 17 years old.

Which players come closer to Kylian Mbappe’s record.

When talking about Kylian Mbappe’s impressive numbers, we have to go deep into football history to find only three other players who reached this number of goals in professional football.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are not even in the conversation, as both of these players reached their 100 goals when they were 22 years of age.

The first player who reached this number before turning 21 years old was English legend, Jimmy Greaves.

The Englishman reached this number during his first four years at Chelsea FC, and then went on to have an incredible career at Tottenham Hotspur.

The second name we’ll drop here is Ronaldo Nazario’s, who scored his 100th professional goal during his first year at PSV Eindhoven.

However, we are not counting the 59 goals that he scored with the under-17 Brazil National Team. Now we move to the biggest of them all, which is King Pele.

The Brazilian legend’s record is simply incredible, as he was already near the 200-goal mark before he turned 21 years old.

We also have to mention Neymar in this list because he reached 100 career-goals when he was only 19, but we all know how his luck has been since he moved to European football.

Mbappe’s name will forever be associated with these players.
