Choupo-Moting: Hard to explain incredible howler

Still, on Sunday night, Choupo-Moting was given the nod to start the Ligue 1 game at home with mid-table Strasbourg, knowing a victory would seal another league title for PSG.

Choupo-Moting needlessly deflected a goal-bound shot from team-mate Christopher Nkunku onto the post from point-blank range to prevent his side going 2-1 in front in the first half.

The game eventually ended in a 2-2 tie with PSG having to wait before being crowned champions of France.

"I wanted to go to the ball, put it in the net... but it went very fast, it may not be easy to understand but it goes very fast".

PSG made it 2-2 eight minutes from time when Kehrer headed home but despite the late efforts of Mbappe and Alves, the hosts were left frustrated.

In his pre-match press conference on Saturday, Tuchel suggested he would like to add three or four players to his squad for next season, when the club will no doubt once again have lofty expectations of Champions League success.

After Choupo-Moting's blunder, Strasbourg kept pushing and earned a corner kick in the 38th that PSG defenders failed to clear properly.

Victory would have given PSG their eighth Ligue 1 title after Lille earlier drew 1-1 at Stade de Reims but Sunday's draw left Thomas Tuchel's side on 81 points from 30 games.

The score was 1-1 at the time as PSG sought the win that would have lifted them to the French title.

Strasbourg have since taken the lead against the Paris giants and Choupo-Moting will still be wondering how he managed to do that. I saw the pictures and I'm sorry because the ball was entering the met on Nkunku's shot.

"Big up to Choupo-Moting".
