Choupo-Moting’s title-winning season will be overshadowed by horror miss
Paris Saint-Germain finally have the title wrapped up, but the Cameroonian’s shocking miss will be his stand-out contribution
The champagne had to stay iced a little longer than was initially expected, but finally Paris Saint-Germain are French champions for the eighth time in their history.
Lille’s slip-up away at Toulouse on Sunday made sure of it, just when it had begun to seem like PSG would never win another match.
It also marked a first ever title of his professional career for striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who joined only last summer, and has already begun to reap the benefits of associating with success.
However, whatever elation he may feel or have felt in the moment of realization would quickly have dissolved. It was, after all, the 2-2 draw against Strasbourg – more to the point, that miss – that halted PSG’s almost robotic march to the title earlier this month.
