Cutrone is the youngest Italian to score 10 goals in European tournaments
AC Milan forward Patrick Cutrone became the youngest Italian footballer to score 10 goals in European tournaments.
The Rossoneri beat Dudelange at home with the score of 5:2 in the Europa League’s group stage fifth round match and the first goal in the game was scored by Cutrone.
Thus, at the age of 20 years, 10 months and 26 days Cutrone became the youngest Italian who managed to score 10 goals in European competitions. However, all 10 goals were scored in the Europa League, as the Rossoneri’s youngster did not have a chance to show himself in the Champions League.
The second place is now occupied by former Juventus forward Roberto Bettega (20 years, 11 months and 11 days), and another Bianconeri’s legend Alessandro Del Piero (21 years, 11 months and 21 days) is closing the top three.
The TOP 5 includes former AC Milan player Pierino Prati (22 years, 5 months and 15 days), as well as Inter legend Sandro Mazzola (22 years, 6 months and 4 days).
