Kylian Mbappe's Reaction To Eric Choupo-Moting's 'Miss Of The Century' Is Priceless
It has been described as the worst miss of all time. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting couldn't find the net from a matter of inches against Strasburg last night and well, nobody could quite process how it happened.
Moting, who actually opened the scoring for Paris Saint-Germain, believe it or not, wasn't the only player in a state of shock after his, quite frankly, abysmal effort in the 27th minute.
Moments after his miss, the cameras panned towards the substitutes bench and the facial expressions of Kylian Mbappe paint a very funny picture.
I still can't believe he managed to miss this. HOW?!

In his post match comments, Choupo-Moting struggled to pin point how he missed such a simple chance:
"Even for me it's hard to explain. I saw the pictures and I'm sorry because the ball was entering the net on Nkunku's shot," he said via AS.
"There had to be a goal. At first I thought he was going to pass me the ball, then he shot. I thought the defender was going to counter him, that's why I hesitated.

Eyebrows were raised when PSG signed Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting from relegated Stoke City...

"I wondered if I was offside or not. And if the ball was going to enter so don't touch it... I had a bad reflex. I touched the ball, it stayed on the line and touched the post...I wasted this opportunity."
You don't say, Eric.
Strasbourg eventually picked up a draw against the reigning Ligue 1 champions, stopping them from winning another title for the time being.
Nuno da Costa equalised for Strasbourg in the 26th minute before Thierry Laurey's side went into half-time with the lead thanks to Anthony Gonçalves.
