- Kylian Mbappe’s latest goal for Paris Saint-Germain has wowed spectators.
- The goal was scored in a Ligue 1 match against Saint-Etienne.
- It has to be seen to be believed, and you can watch it below.
Kylian Mbappe’s technical quality was on display in Paris Saint-Germain’s recent Ligue 1 victory over Saint-Etienne.
The forward, who continues to revel in the absence of injured pair Neymar and Edinson Cavani, scored the only goal of Sunday’s match and channeled some of the greats of the game in the process.
In the 73rd minute, the Brazilian defender Dani Alves lofted a ball over the Saint-Etienne defence, threading Mbappe through on goal.
But the teenager still had it all to do to score and gave himself the best opportunity to do so when he showed Alan Shearer’s positional sense, Ronaldinho’s technique, and the accuracy and power Robin van Persie could generate off of a volley.
With a vision that belied his teenage years, Mbappe fired the ball into the net with just one touch. Ping. Goal.
It really is a work of art, and has to be seen to believed.
