Behold PSG’s record goalscorer: KYLIAN MBAPPE!
Kylian Mbappe has made history after netting against Nantes to become Paris Saint Germain’s record scorer.
On Saturday night, PSG were in Ligue 1 action against Nantes.
Argentina legend Lionel Messi started and opened the scoring after just 12 minutes after finishing off a fine team move.
PSG went 2-0 up five minutes after Messi’s opener as Nantes defender Jaouen Hadjam deflected the ball into the back of his own net.
Ludovic Blas scored to bring Nantes right back in the game after making it 2-1 in the 31st minute.
The Ligue 1 leaders were then shocked seven minutes later as Ignatius Kpene Ganago scored to make it 2-2.
In the second half, Danilo Pereira made it 3-2 in the 60th minute.
Two minutes into added time, history was made for Mbappe as he finally scored to make it 4-2 on the night, whilst becoming the club’s highest goal scorer.
After netting his 201st goal for the Parc des Princes club, he surpassed the previous record held by Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani.
After the game, the Paris native expressed his pride over the achievement.
“It’s a privilege to play for Paris Saint-Germain. It’s special to be a PSG player as this is my city.” Mbappé said, via Fabrizio Romano.
“I’m here to write history… in France, in the capital, in my country, in my city. It’s beautiful… but I want also collective achievements.”
Thus far into his career, Mbappé has been one of the most successful players on the planet. He’s already won a World Cup, six Ligue 1 titles (including one at Monaco), two Coupe de Ligue titles and various individual achievements.
Fans were quick to react to Mbappe’s achievement.
One said: “The best scorer and best player in the history of PSG.”
Another tweeted: “He’s the Best! He simply is! All respect to Mbappe, already a young legend!”
A third added: “I can’t stop smiling. Mbappé you are the best !!!”
Someone else wrote: “201 reasons why Mbappe is the best on the planet.”
Whilst a fifth commented: “Kylian Mbappe Lottin…The best of this generation.”
Up next for PSG will be the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie against German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.
Messi and his teammates have some work to do if they are to qualify for the quarter-finals after losing the first leg 1-0, thanks to a goal by former PSG man Kingsley Coman.
