European football season is slowly getting back to normal after the end of the 2018 festivities. La Liga and Ligue 1 returned last weekend to join English clubs who were busy in FA Cup third round. The fans want all their stars back to continue the entertainment. Today, we want to focus on six stars with the best goal record by age 20 for club and country in history.

Lionel Messi had scored only 27 goals for Barcelona and Argentina by the time he celebrated his 20th birthday. We all know what he has achieved especially at Camp Nou since then. He has lifted the coveted Ballon d’Or five times, several golden boots, UEFA Champions League, and La Liga crown among others.

Manchester United record goalscorer Wayne Rooney was more like Kylian Mbappe when he was young. He started scoring them for fun at Everton before Sir Alex Ferguson signed him in 2004. By the time Rooney turned 20 years, he had scored 43 goals for the two clubs and Three Lions.
4. Sergio Aguero- 44 Goals by Age 20

Manchester City all-time best scorer will certainly not miss on this list. The Argentine is no doubt one of the most gifted strikers in the current generation. By the time he turned age 20, he had netted 44 goals for Independiente and the national team.
