Kylian Mbappe scores after pinching ball from goalkeeper – yet PSG still lose

Kylian Mbappe's smart play led to an intelligent goal from the Frenchman – but PSG weren't on the same wavelength.

Mbappe had frantically scrambled the ball towards goal as the Parisian giants welcomed FC Lorient to the Parc des Princes. However, Lorient shot-stopper Yvon Mvogo was able to scoop the ball up, preserving Lorient's lead.

Moments later, the ball was in the back of the net as Mvogo had placed down the ball to boot upfield – not realising Mbappe was behind him. The Frenchman nipped in and rolled the ball home to send PSG level for the afternoon.

One fan tweeted: "Y’all are on here calling Kylian Mbappe shameless for being smart in play like that’s crazy…Goal is a goal, the game's the game!"

"And they say Erling [Haaland] scores tap-ins, this couldn’t be more of a tap-in if it tried," a second added. While a third tweeted: "The celebration after it was shameless," with a number of laughing emojis.

"Mbappe should get out of this league asap if he wants to win a Ballon d'Or," a fourth said. And another added: "This league is so unserious!"

Mbappe's strike fired the Parisian side level, but it wasn't enough to win the game. FC Lorient shocked the French footballing world when they bounced back to find the net two more times – downing PSG 3-1 in the process.

PSG remain top of the pile, but Marseille have now cut their lead to just five points, after the coastal side beat AJ Auxerre. Lorient, on the other hand, remain firmly mid-table as they won their first game a 2-0 win over ESTAC Troyes in March.
