Kylian Mbappé Covers 85 Yards In Remarkable One-Man Counterattack Goal

With a hat trick in PSG’s 5-1 Coupe de France semifinal victory over Lyon, Kylian Mbappé took his total to 30 goals in 32 appearances across all competitions this season (to go with 17 assists).

Following Martin Terrier’s early opener for Lyon, Mbappé equalized in the 14th after ensuring that Layvin Kurzawa’s header found the back of the net from close range. Neymar then gave PSG the lead in the 64th minute from the penalty spot.

French Keeper Scores Unbelievable Goal From Own Six-Yard Box

It’s Friday, so let’s have a pizza party and head over to Domino’s Ligue 2 for the greatest goal you’ll ever see from a league sponsored by a subpar restaurant. 

Less than a minute after keeper Brice Maubleu gave up a goal on a penalty kick, the French keeper scored an implausible goal from his own six-yard box.

Edinson Cavani Notches Goal 200 For PSG — Who’s Scored The Most For One Club?

After failing to come off the bench in PSG’s 2-1 Champions League defeat to Borussia Dortmund, Edinson Cavani was handed a start against Bordeaux in Ligue 1 action Sunday and scored his landmark 200th goal for the club.

Cavani was already PSG’s all-time leading scorer (Zlatan Ibrahimović is second with 156), but it’s a special milestone for the 33-year-old as his seventh season in Paris figures to be his last.    

PSG Prepares For UCL Showdown With BVB By Shipping 4 In Bizarre Draw With 19th-Place Amiens

Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel thought he could rest his stars against the 19th-place team in Ligue 1 ahead of the start of the Champions League knockout rounds on Tuesday. He was wrong.

SC Amiens scored the game’s first three goals only to see PSG come back to take the lead before a late equalizer gave the home side an unlikely 4-4 draw Saturday at Stade de la Licorne.

Kylian Mbappé Substitution Leaves The Young Frenchman Heated

For the second time this season, PSG manager Thomas Tuchel had to deal with drama after a Kylian Mbappé substitution — this time during his team’s 5-0 victory against Montpellier on Saturday.

Sometimes you just really don’t want to be substituted out of a match. The level of soccer doesn’t matter — whether it’s youth, college or professional — but the best thing to do is wish your oncoming teammate success and then get cozy on the bench. But Mbappé seems to have his own style.

Neymar Scores Incredible Goal And Pays Tribute To Kobe Bryant

PSG defeated Lille 2-0 on Sunday to go 10 points clear of Marseille at the top of the Ligue 1 table. Both of the goals were scored by Neymar — the first a sensational effort from the top of the box and the second from the penalty spot — who celebrated his brace by paying tribute to Kobe Bryant. Bryant, along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, were involved in a helicopter crash that claimed the lives of everyone on board.

Nantes Unveils Emiliano Sala Tribute Jersey

On Jan. 21, 2019, Argentine footballer Emiliano Sala passed away after his plane heading for Cardiff went down in the English Channel. 

The 28-year-old was headed to Wales after his former club FC Nantes and Cardiff City agreed to a $20 million transfer for the striker. His body was recovered from the wreckage, but the pilot and only other person on the plane, David Ibbotson, was not found.

A year after the tragedy, Nantes has unveiled its Argentina-styled kit (Sala was from the village of Cululú) for an upcoming match against Bordeaux in remembrance of its former player.

Guingamp Striker Nathaël Julan Dies At 23

Nathaël Julan, a 23-year-old striker for Guingamp, was killed in a car crash on Friday.

The French club confirmed the death, issuing the following statement:

“En Avant Guingamp is in mourning. The club had the immense pain of learning this afternoon, the accidental death of its player Nathael Julan. On this tragic day, all the members of the club join together to send their sad condolences to Nathael’s family.”

Kylian Mbappé Scores Another Outrageous Goal Because That’s All He Does

Just another day at the office for PSG sensation Kylian Mbappé on Wednesday. The 20-year-old scored his sixth goal in nine Ligue 1 games to keep PSG’s lead over second-place Marseille at five points. He also performed a shifty elastico and was asked by an opposing player to exchange shirts at halftime. 

After finishing sixth in 2019 Ballon d’Or voting on Monday, the prodigy delighted fans inside the Parc des Princes by looking very much like El Fenomeno with this trick.       

Forget The BS, Look At This Beautiful Neymar Pass

Fresh off a hamstring injury that cost him six games, 37 days and a myriad of hot takes, Neymar returned to the pitch on Friday for first-place PSG’s encounter with seventh-place Lille in Ligue 1.

In the midst of it all, it’s unfortunate how much the off-the-pitch noise engulfs the 27-year-old Brazilian. He’ll certainly never be Mexico’s cup of tea, but notwithstanding tribal feuds, he remains football’s second-best attraction behind Lionel Messi (I have all the time in the world for the Cristiano Ronaldo G.O.A.T. argument, but he's really not that fun to watch anymore).
