PARIS, April 7 (Reuters) - Eric Choupo-Moting scored his third Ligue 1 goal of the season on Sunday but the Paris St Germain forward’s incredible miss later in the game was the moment that will be remembered from his performance in Sunday’s 2-2 draw against Racing Strasbourg.
The Cameroon international put PSG ahead after 13 minutes at the Parc des Princes with a strike from inside the box but that goal was later overshadowed by a scramble that went viral on social media.
Christophe Nkunku’s chip was on its way to the back of the net when Choupo-Moting appeared to try to poke the ball home, only for his foot to stop it on the goal line and prevent PSG from equalising after they had gone 2-1 down.
“I hesitated, I thought maybe I was offside,” said the 30-year-old.
Thilo Kehrer later equalised for PSG who nevertheless were made to wait to celebrate an eighth Ligue 1 title as they had needed all three points to be crowned champions on Sunday. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Clare Fallon)
