James Wilson is 18 years old and on Tuesday, was handed his first ever appearance for Manchester United. He scored.
So he's 18 years old, a Manchester United player and scored in his debut. Not bad, but is it really that impressive? We asked people what they were doing when they were 18.

Okay, so maybe Wilson scoring for Manchester United at 18 is impressive, but Scott had Fall Out Boy. Does Wilson have Fall Out Boy?
Of note: Wilson has scored more goals than Shinji Kagawa has this season.
Wilson scored again.
He has now scored two more goals this season than Marouane Fellaini.
