Young Kylian Mbappe meets Cristiano Ronaldo in ace throwback pic

As Monaco saw off Dortmund in the quarter-finals on Wednesday evening, Kylian Mbappe did his ascent to stardom no harm at all by becoming the first player to score in all of his first four Champions League knockout games.

Before the match, Mbappe was taken on a little walk down memory lane by Norwegian player-turned-pundit Jan Aage Fjortoft, who dredged up a brilliant photo of the French prodigy.

Indeed, the image showed a 13-year-old Mbappe, clad in Real Madrid kit and posing for a photo with his idol, Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Showed Mbappe this photo - him with @Cristiano and.....me," Fjortoft quipped.

Five years on down the line and it's Mbappe who now stands on the cusp of becoming the crown prince of European football.

How times change, eh?

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
