Lorient Players Perform Erling Haaland's Meditation Celebration Against Paris Saint-Germain

There was a real shock on the cards at the Stade du Moustoir on Sunday afternoon as Mauricio Pochettino's Paris Saint-Germain suffered a shock 3-2 loss against Ligue 1 strugglers Lorient.

The home side, who currently sit in 18th place in France's top flight, opened the scoring through Laurent Abergel but a brace from PSG forward Neymar put the favourites ahead early in the second-half.

To their credit Lorient didn't give up on getting something from the game and with just ten minutes remaining, Yoane Wissa converted past Spanish goalkeeper Sergio Rico to level the Ligue 1 clash.

Wissa ran over to the corner flag after scoring and performed the classic meditation celebration - made famous by Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

Lorient went on to score a dramatic late winner in stoppage time after Terem Moffi showed great composure to give his side all three points. Mauricio Pochettino's expression says it all.

If you're unfamilar with the story surrounding Haaland's trademark celebration and the PSG squad, then let me explain.

Ahead of Dortmund's Champions League clash against the French champions last year, a fake Snapchat picture started to circulate showing the Dortmund striker poking fun at the French club, with 'my city, not yours' and 'Paris' handwritten across his jumper.

PSG went on to beat Dortmund 2-0 in the return leg and Neymar, who scored the opener, mocked Haaland by doing his meditation pose.

In fact, after the tie, the majority of PSG's squad posed for a picture while doing the classic meditation-style celebration.

When asked if their antics left him upset, the former RB Salzburg striker told ESPN: "No, not really.

"I think they helped me a lot to get meditation out in the world and to show the whole world that meditation is an important thing so I'm thankful that they helped me with that."
