🚨 Kylian Mbappé racks up another career milestone

Frenchman Kylian Mbappé racked up another career milestone on Sunday evening as he became the youngest player to 100 Ligue 1 goals.

The striker netted a brace as PSG ran 4-2 winners over Lyon with his century of goals coming just after 142 games in the French top-flight Division.

At 22 years, three months, and one day, Mbappe reached the landmark more than a year faster than the previous holder of the record Hervé Revelli who clocked the milestone while featuring for Saint-Etienne in 1969.

Speaking to Canal+ after reaching the milestone, the world cup winner said: "It was a good day to score the 100th league goal as I knew I was two goals away. I wanted to score the goals in the previous game but instead of that, I gifted a goal to Kolo Muani so I needed to make up for that. It's another stage in my career, another step into history.

"These are things that stay with you. The road continues, it has only just started. I still have many years left in front of me in order to perfect my game and to improve, and things can only get better."

Mbappé's double moved him onto 20 goals, six clear of Lyon captain Memphis Depay in the golden boot race.
