Kylian Mbappe Achieves 300 Career Goals Faster Than Messi and Ronaldo
Kylian Mbappe, the France captain and Paris Saint-Germain forward, reached a significant career milestone on Saturday night, scoring his 300th senior career goal in a remarkable fashion. The achievement came during France’s historic 14-0 victory over Gibraltar, where Mbappe completed his 17th career hat-trick with a spectacular goal from nearly 40 yards.
In the record-breaking match, Mbappe showcased his prowess by achieving the 300-goal mark at the age of 24 years, 10 months, and 29 days. This accomplishment puts him ahead in terms of age compared to both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo when they reached the same milestone in their illustrious careers.
Lionel Messi reached his 300th career goal in October 2012 at the age of 25 years, four months, and three days. On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo achieved this milestone at 27 years of age. Mbappe’s achievement at a younger age adds another feather to his cap, emphasizing his exceptional talent and goal-scoring ability.
While Mbappe has surpassed Messi and Ronaldo in reaching 300 goals at a younger age, the road ahead to match their overall career tallies remains a formidable task. Messi, currently 36, boasts an impressive 821 goals, while Ronaldo, at 38, holds the world record with 865 career goals and shows no signs of slowing down.
Kylian Mbappe’s accomplishment highlights his incredible skill and goal-scoring prowess. As he continues his journey in the world of football, the comparisons with Messi and Ronaldo will undoubtedly persist, adding an exciting narrative to the future of soccer.
