Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting miss: Is it the worst of all time?

Reaction from Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel after his side were forced to come from behind to earn a 2-2 draw with Strasbourg in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting put PSG in front in the 13th minute after poking Colin Dagba's right-flank cross at target.

Having put the hosts in front, the Cameroon global incredibly contrived to stop Christopher Nkunku's goal-bound effort at 1-1, and was unable to even turn to the ball into the net.

Then Cameroon global Choupo-Moting needlessly took a touch and somehow diverted the ball onto the foot of the post from less than a yard out to prevent his side from regaining the lead.

The game eventually ended in a 2-2 tie with PSG having to wait before being crowned champions of France.

Asked about his miss post-match, Choupo-Moting said: "Even for me it's hard to explain".

Substitute Thilo Kehrer's late goal helped PSG maintain their 20-point advantage over Lille with seven rounds left to play.

As you can see from the clip below, PSG star Kylian Mbappe was left in disbelief of the play.

The draw at the Stade Auguste-Delaune moves them five points clear of third-placed Lyon, who slumped to a shock 3-1 loss at home to relegation-threatened Dijon on Saturday.

When everyone thought it was going to be 2-1, Choupo-Moting thought of stopping the ball on the goalline.

PSG now have the chance to seal the Ligue 1 title away at rivals Lille next weekend where they will clinch by avoiding defeat.

In an eventful game, Choupo-Moting put the hosts ahead in the 13th minute when Colin Dagba beat the off-side trap down the right side to deliver a precise cross for the Cameroon global, who scored with a calm finish.

Tuchel was then sent to the stands on 58 minutes for verbally challenging the referee, with Mbappe and Julian Draxler entering the fray shortly after to try and salvage the game.
