Paris Saint-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe has broken Lionel Messi’s record to become the youngest player to score 15 Champions League goals.

Only just back from injury, the 20-year-old was brought on in the second half of PSG’s 5-0 away win against Club Brugge and proved instrumental in securing the comfortable victory as he bagged an impressive hat-trick.

Brought on in the 52nd minute, Mbappe headed home his first just nine minutes later and added an assist not long after as he set up Mauro Icardi.

In the 80th minute, the Frenchman fired home his second after beating two defenders and completed his hat-trick four minutes later having been set up once again by Angel Di Maria.

Another magical performance from Mbappe in Europe’s top competition means he’s now scored 15 Champions League goals at the age of 20 years and 306 days. That feat has seen him become the youngest player to bring up the milestone, smashing the record previously held by Messi, who achieved the same aged 21 years and 288 days.
