Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting produced a howler in front of goal that will arguably go down as the worst miss of all-time.
 

 

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting will be a name etched in the memories of Paris Saint-Germain and football fans for a long, long time -- for all the wrong reasons. PSG were on the brink of sealing their sixth French Ligue 1 title in seven seasons but what transpired in the match against Strasbourg in the French capital will be hard to forget. Choupo-Moting might have given PSG an early lead but later in the first half, the former Stoke City player somehow succeeded in turning a net-bound Christopher Nkunku shot onto the post while standing on the goal-line.
 
Choupo-Moting's howler will go down as arguably the worst miss of all-time.
 
Here is a clip of Choupo-Moting's horror miss at home against Strasbourg:
 
"I wondered if I was offside and it all happened very fast. I touched the ball, it hit the post and, well, it's a real shame because the ball was going in," Choupo-Moting told Canal+.
 
"Sorry about that."
 
Fresh from winning the League Cup last weekend, Strasbourg had equalised prior to Choupo-Moting's howler when Nuno Da Costa turned in a Lionel Carole cross, and they found themselves 2-1 up in the 38th minute when Anthony Goncalves lashed home from 22 yards.
 
Kylian Mbappe came off the bench on the hour mark but it was another PSG substitute who made it 2-2 with eight minutes remaining. Julian Draxler sent in a corner from the right and Germany defender Thilo Kehrer headed home.
 
However, having drawn at home to PSG back in December, mid-table Strasbourg then held on for a point.
 
Cameroon international Choupo-Moting started with Mbappe rested and Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Edinson Cavani all unfit -- the latter watched from the stands sporting a beret.

Thought of the day

Distribute your day into 8+8+8 hrs to make a good balance sheet of your life. 8 hrs of honest hard work, 8 hrs of good sleep and 8 hrs should be spent on (3Fs, 3Hs and 3S). 3Fs are family, friends and faith. 3Hs are health, hygiene and hobby and 3S are soul, service and smile. This can make a great balance sheet of your life.😊
