In a piece of news that will no doubt make you feel old, the incredibly talented Eduardo Camavinga has already had a stadium named after him, aged 18.
The Stade Rennais midfielder was present at a ceremony on Saturday afternoon to celebrate the opening of a stadium located in La Chapelle-Janson, near where he grew up in Fougères.
Camavinga, who made 42 appearances in all competitions last season, played his football in the area before joining Rennes' youth system, aged 11.
According to reports, the new stadium is home to the CF2L; an academy that brings together some of the most talented players in the surrounding areas to train and play.
The teenager posted a picture of himself next to the ground on his official Instagram account earlier as a reported 150 kids from the academy turned up to see the opening ceremony.
It is believed Camavinga spent several hours taking pictures with kids from the local area, as well as signing autographs. He also had a kickabout with those present.

The 18-year-old midfielder has been strongly linked with a move away from Roazhon Park in recent months, with Premier League side Arsenal reportedly making him their number one target.
The Express claim that Ligue 1 side Rennes are demanding a fee in excess of £43million this summer.
