AC MILAN wonderkid Francesco Camarda has scored a staggering 483 goals in 87 matches.
The 13-year-old goal machine is in scintillating form for the Italians and has been tipped for the top.
Francesco Camarda has netted 483 times in 87 matches for AC Milan’s academy
Camarda is in his fifth year with Milan’s academy.
He is said to have scored 247 goals in just 40 games in 2017-18 – an average of 6.175-PER-GAME.
He then found the net 172 times in 31 matches the following season before 64 in 16 in 19-20 which took him to his stunning total.
Well known scout Sciabolata Morbida brought him to fans’ attention with a tweet that was hard to believe.
He wrote alongside a graphic detailing the stats: “He is Francesco Camarda, a 2008 [born] forward who is in his fifth year with Rossonero.
“It is one of the most prolific strikers in the country, if we don’t consider the category… His numbers are indeed impressive.”
Some of the games in question were not all 11 vs 11.
And of course the level of opposition he is playing against is likely to be lower given the age group in which he plays.
But the stats are mind-blowing nonetheless.
Camarda has stepped up an age group this season – playing in the U-15 National A/B championship.
He is now playing with kids born in 2007 rather than 2008 when he was born.
And one of his new team-mates in Clarence Seedorf’s son Denzel Miguel Viana Seedorf.
The U-15s won their most recent match – beating Verona with Camarda bagging twice.
Only last year we heard a similar tale with Borussia Dortmund star Youssoufa Moukoko.
Moukoko is the youngest player in Bundesliga and Champions League history – making his German top-flight debut a day after turning 16 in November as the league adjusted the rules to allow his first-team debut.

He netted his first senior goal aged 16 years and 28 days on his full debut to break the record for the youngest Bundesliga scorer.
Moukoko drew plenty of attention after his prolific time in the Dortmund academy, scoring 192 in just 123 appearances.
The striker started first-team training in January 2020 and scored 13 in four U19 appearances at the beginning of this season before becoming eligible for Lucien Favre’s side.
