PSG fielded a very strong roster even though they would face Pays de Cassel, the team who finished in sixth place, in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France. Mbappe and Neymar both had playing time right away despite the absence of superstar Lionel Messi from the match. For the first fifteen minutes, the Paris side struggled, but ever since Mbappe broke the scoreless draw, goals have been falling for Paris.
In the 29th minute, Mendes transferred the ball to Mbappe, who executed a quick connection kick that caused the ball to strike a home side player’s foot and fly into the goal. Four more minutes later, Mbappe sent Neymar a pass that allowed him to “dance” in front of three players from Pays de Cassel before converting through the gap between the two goalkeepers to make it 2-0 for PSG.
A little more than a minute and a half later, Mbappe scored by eluding an offside trap, gaining possession of the ball with his chest, and backheeling it over the goalkeeper. The French striker completed his hat trick in the match’s forty-second minute with a skillful flick past the opposing goalkeeper. At the start of the second half, Mbappe was able to escape an offside trap and score a goal against the other squad.
The number 7 player for PSG made a shrewd move to make the score 7-0, and then he cushioned the ball delicately after Vitinha’s cross. Prior to that, Soler had a heel strike that hit the opponent’s net after Neymar had played the ball out of ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀ. Mbappe made his mark in the annals of PSG history when he became the first player in the club’s history to score five goals in a game.
Furthermore, the French striker is making his professional debut while playing with “small hands.” Prior to then, Mbappe had previously made two pokers, scoring four goals in each game while playing for PSG in 2018 against Lyon and France in 2021 against Kazakhstan. At the start of this match, Mbappe is also making his debut as the PSG captain as he dons the armband for the first time.
The team’s head coach, Coach Galtier, has announced that the French striker has served as vice-captain of PSG since the start of the current campaign. In reality, this is nothing new. We decided that Kylian Mbappe would be the team’s vice captain at the beginning of the season. Marquinhos has a right to wear the captain’s armband if he is unable to participate.
Mbappe is quite enthusiastic about the “new responsibility” that has been given to him. On his personal page, the French striker uploaded an image of the captain’s armband along with two heart icons, one pink and one blue, and the sign for the captain’s armband (the C in the circle). It’s possible that this is why Mbappe played with such a high level of excitement in this match.
