PSG striker Choupo-Moting apologises after Ligue 1 title-postponing miss

PSG player inexplicably robs his own teammate of a goal

I have watched this replay dozens of times, and I still have no idea what Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting was thinking during Sunday's Ligue 1 match against Strasbourg.

Yet somehow Choupo-Moting had managed to not only deny Nkunku a great goal but also hit the post from the goal line, in a blunder unlike any seen before.

Goncalves's stunning volley from 18 metres put Strasbourg ahead seven minutes before the break against a PSG side who had previously been behind on the scoreline for only three minutes in Ligue 1 this season.

Moments after his miss, the cameras panned towards the substitutes bench and the facial expressions of Kylian Mbappe paint a very amusing picture.

Eric Choupo-Moting might have just recorded the worst miss in the history of the game.

Former Liverpool star Rosenthal famously missed an open goal from around 10 yards out, hitting the bar against Aston Villa in 1992 in a moment often described as the worst miss of all time.




The shopping list should include an upgrade on Choupo-Moting, who will surely forever be remembered at PSG - and perhaps for his entire career - for his error.

With eight games remaining PSG still hold a 20 point lead over second-place Lille.

"Even for me it's hard to explain. I don't know what I'd clock now but I'm very confident about getting in behind defenders".

With the ball trickling over the line, the Cameroon worldwide stuck out a left boot to ensure PSG took the lead.

In an eventful game, Choupo-Moting put the hosts ahead in the 13th minute when Colin Dagba beat the off-side trap down the right side to deliver a precise cross for the Cameroon worldwide, who scored with a calm finish.
