France and Paris Saint-Germain superstar, Kylian Mbappe has established himself as arguably the best young player in the world with the 22-year-old continuing to score goals in droves and make history for the French giants.

Mbappe recently scored his 100th Ligue 1 goal in his career, with Le Parisien reporting that the striker reached the mark at 22 years and 91 days, which made him the the youngest ever to hit the 100 Ligue 1 goals milestone.

Infact, the Frenchman reached the 100 league goals mark at a quicker rate than both Barcelona icon, Lionel Messi and Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo. Messi scored his landmark 100th league goal at 23 years and 149 days while Ronaldo notched his historic goal during the age of 25.

Since his breakout season in 2016, Mbappe has emerged as one of the most deadliest strikers in the world as seen by the 120 goals he has scored in all competitions for PSG in just 160 games. He has also become a key figure for the France national team, leading his country to the 2018 World Cup - where he became only the second teenager after Brazil legend, Pele to score in a World Cup final.
