Neymar wins French Cup final for PSG

first_imgThe World Cup winner was later seen emerging from the tunnel on crutches following a dreadful challenge that resulted in the dismissal of Saint-Etienne captain Loic Perrin.“Everyone is worried. Everyone who saw the foul is worried. Of course I’m worried,” said Tuchel.“I’m very happy because we won but we have to stay patient because we don’t have any news. I think he will undergo tests tonight.”PSG secured the first of a potential three trophies this summer, claiming a record-extending 13th French Cup with the League Cup final against Lyon to come next Friday before the resumption of their European campaign in Portugal.“It was very difficult, which is perhaps the best thing,” added Tuchel, whose side added to their Ligue 1 title awarded in April after the season was ended prematurely. Loading… The final at the Stade de France was the first official match in one of Europe’s top football nations to allow fans to attend since March, albeit in severely restricted numbers with just 2,805 spectators – including French President Emmanuel Macron – inside the 80,000-seater venue.A minute’s applause was held ahead of kick-off for the victims of COVID-19, which has claimed the lives of over 30,000 people in France, and in support of frontline workers.PSG had racked up 20 goals without reply in three friendlies building up to the final, but Yvann Macon’s crunching tackle on Neymar in the first minute suggested no such goodwill would be afforded by Saint-Etienne in their first French Cup final appearance since 1982.The challenge set the tone for a fractious opening period and Denis Bouanga was inches from firing Saint-Etienne ahead when his strike rebounded back off Keylor Navas’s left-hand post.Unfazed by that scare, PSG led on 14 minutes as Mbappe burst into the area after an exchange with Angel Di Maria and Neymar crashed home the rebound via the underside of the crossbar after a fine save from Jessy Moulin.Bouanga twice forced Navas to turn away while Moulin produced a sensational one-handed stop to tip over from Di Maria, earning plaudits from the Argentine himself.Saint-Etienne’s hopes of fighting back were hampered midway through the first half though when the veteran Perrin, on likely his final appearance for the club, was sent off for a dreadful challenge on Mbappe.He required lengthy treatment but was forced off after his right ankle was trapped between the legs of Perrin, whose yellow card was upgraded to red following a VAR review.Emotions boiled over with five players booked in the aftermath following an ugly melee, but the greater concern for PSG will be the severity of Mbappe’s injury.The France star reappeared from the tunnel on crutches in the second half, with less than three weeks before PSG’s Champions League tie against Atalanta on August 12.Moulin kept Saint-Etienne in with a remote shot of ending their 43-year wait for a seventh French Cup title, repelling Mauro Icardi and Di Maria before spreading himself superbly to deny Pablo Sarabia.Read Also: PSG star goes on crutches as Champions League loomsThe goalkeeper even raced forward for a late corner but PSG held firm to atone for last year’s defeat in the final by Rennes on penalties, clinching the trophy for the fifth time in the past six seasons.“It’s really tough to take, especially like that. We had chances and we pushed them,” said Moulin.“There are things to be pleased about but losing a final is always hard to digest.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 However, coach Thomas Tuchel faces an anxious wait over the fitness of Kylian Mbappe ahead of next month’s Champions League quarter-final against Atalanta after the France star limped off in tears during the first half with an ankle injury.center_img Neymar netted the winning goal as Paris Saint-Germain defeated 10-man Saint-Etienne 1-0 in the French Cup final on Friday night, the first competitive fixture in the country since March 11 following the coronavirus pandemic.Advertisement Promoted Content10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadePortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D GraffitiWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?This Is Hachi, And He’s The Happiest Dog On InstagramTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All TimeWe’re Getting More Game Of Thrones: Enter House Of The Dragon!A Soviet Shot Put Thrower’s Record Hasn’t Been Beaten To This DayCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way10 Outrageous Ideas That Made People Ridiculously RichA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic BombsBrother Creates A Phenomenal Dress For His Sisterlast_img read more

Liverpool v Manchester United ratings

first_img Simon Mignolet: Had very little to do until picking the ball out of the net following Rooney’s fierce volley. Six (out of 10) Nathaniel Clyne: Had only a minimal impact on the attack and ploughed a shot into the stands after the break. 6 Press Association Kolo Toure: Looked solid against Wayne Rooney for most of the match even though the United captain is four years his junior. 7 Mamadou Sakho: Looked wobbly at times and should have tested David de Gea with a second half header. 5 Alberto Moreno: Got forward well and prevented Lingard from getting into the game. 6 Lucas Leiva: Enjoyed a running battle with Marouane Fellaini and protected the back four well. 7 Emre Can: Almost scored when he strode past Smalling and shot at De Gea. 7 Jordan Henderson: Desperately needs some shooting practice. Had three wayward efforts from long range and shot straight at De Gea in the 62nd minute. 5 James Milner: Offered little threat. 5 Adam Lallana: Weak header at De Gea in the 10th minute. 5 Roberto Firmino: Went close a couple of times and succeeded in drawing Daley Blind out of position a couple of times. 7 Substitutes: Jordon Ibe (on for Lallana, 76mins): Could not swing the game in Liverpool’s favour and lost Mata for the goal. 5 Christian Benteke (on for Toure, 81mins): Should have come on earlier to test Smalling and Blind. 5 Steven Caulker (on for Milner, 90mins): Thrown on to provide more height up top but it was too late to make a difference. 5 MANCHESTER UNITED David de Gea: Pulled off a fantastic double save to deny Firmino and Can in the second half. Deservedly awarded the man of the match award. 8 Ashley Young: Hobbled off with an injury towards the end of the first half after a challenge by James Milner. 6 Chris Smalling: Can strode past him with alarming ease and sometimes looked shaky, but played his part in keeping a clean sheet again. 6 Daley Blind: Needs to improve his crossing as his corners rarely beat the first man. Was pulled out of position chasing Firmino on occasion too. 6 Matteo Darmian: Put De Gea in danger with a poor backpass. Looked more comfortable when he switched to right-back. 6 Morgan Schneiderlin: Boyhood Liverpool fan was steady if not spectacular. 6 Marouane Fellaini: Looked in danger of getting sent off early on, but regained his composure and proved to be a nuisance all afternoon. Header rattled the bar before Rooney scored. 7 Jesse Lingard: The only United academy product in the starting XI had little impact. 5 Ander Herrera: Sliced a first-half chance wide and was largely ineffective. 5 Anthony Martial: Did not have a meaningful run at the Liverpool defence until first-half stoppage time but was a menace after the break. 7 Wayne Rooney: Quiet until he popped up with a clinical winner in the second half. Exhibited superb technique with his volley. 8 Substitutes: Cameron Borthwick-Jackson (on for Young, 41mins): A calm and assured presence at full-back. 6 Juan Mata (on for Lingard, 65mins): Provided cross that led to the goal. 7 Memphis Depay (on for Herrera, 71mins): Did little after being introduced: 6 LIVERPOOL last_img read more
