This wasn't the first and it certainly won't be the last time Kylian Mbappe writes his name into the history books.
Having only turned 18 years old four months ago, Mbappe is the most exciting young player in Europe, and might well prove to be the best teenager football has ever seen.
A player who broke Thierry Henry's records as Monaco's youngest ever player when he made his debut in December 2015 and as their youngest ever scorer when he scored his first goal two months later, was still not yet a regular starter for the club at the start of this season.
But sure enough, Mbappe forced his way into the team, with substitute appearances here and there before he hit a hat-trick in the cup in December. From then on there has been no looking back.
He has gone from strength to strength, and now forms a lethal partnership up front with the resurgent Radamel Falcao that combines the former Manchester United and Chelsea striker's guile and aerial presence with Mbappe's youthful exuberance, pace and clinical finishing. Between them, they have 40 goals in Ligue 1 and the Champions League in 39 starts so far this season.
And while Falcao's revival after his failed stint in England has been noteworthy, Mbappe has stolen the limelight in recent months, with no opponent seeming to faze him.
In taking just three minutes to break the deadlock in Wednesday's second leg of the quarter-final against Borussia Dortmund, Mbappe became only the sixth player to score in his first four Champions League starts. The most recent was a 26-year-old - and vastly more experienced - Diego Costa.
Mbappe also became the first player ever to score in each of his first four Champions League knockout appearances. It's worth a reminder here that Mbappe is still eight months off his 19th birthday.
Mbappe, currently on five Champions League goals, will surely break Real Madrid legend Raul's record of six before turning 19. He may even do so this season.
It is little surprise that France have already handed him his first competitive cap, in doing so tying him down to play for them rather than let him consider Cameroon or Algeria, for whom he is also eligible.
Arsene Wenger recently compared Mbappe to Henry, saying Monaco's bright spark has "similar qualities" to Arsenal's record goal-scorer.
High praise indeed from one of football's greatest minds, but when watching the ease and speed with which Mbappe carries the ball, you can see what Wenger means.
Mbappe will do well not to get ahead of himself, but with 16 goals in his last 16 appearances he may well be dreaming of one day matching the exploits of the Ballon d'Or winner he met five years ago.
Cristiano Ronaldo won't be looking over his shoulder anytime soon, but Kylian Mbappe is showing the kind of potential that suggests he will go on to be a star.
