Cavani hails Mbappe for scoring on PSG debut

"It's a great pleasure to join PSG, a very ambitious club that wants to become the best", the France forward said.

Rock-bottom Metz had threatened a major shock at Stade Saint-Symphorien – equalising through Emmanuel Riviere, who then passed up an open net at 1-1 – but were comprehensively outclassed after Benoit Assou-Ekotto was harshly dismissed for a physical challenge on Mbappe. I managed to get the better of my marker and shot hard, it went in, it gave us some breathing space and we were able to play as we wanted afterwards. "Since I arrived in Europe, the club has always been one of the most competitive and most ambitious".

The away side's opener came when Cavani latched on to Neymar's exquisite 31st-minute pass, delivered nonchalantly with the outside of the boot, and rounded the goalkeeper, Eiji Kawashima. "But what I must think about is working hard and following my own pathway and not thinking about people who compare you to other players".

Having switched to a 4-2-3-1 formation to accommodate Mbappe alongside Neymar and Julian Draxler behind lone striker Cavani, PSG's star-studded attack looked crowded more often than free-flowing in the opening 30 minutes.

He had offered to step down after two train accidents in Uttar Pradesh last month, which were followed by two other derailments. The move, that came amidst a spate of accidents putting the role of Prabhu in question, did not surprise anyone.


The 18-year-old Mbappe joined PSG on a loan from defending champions Monaco hours before the transfer window closed, with a fee of reportedly 180 million euros ($216 million) after his one-season loan spell in the capital club, reports Xinhua news agency.

"I do not see him coming, he tackles me and it can be more unsafe".

Mbappe is expected to make his PSG debut tonight against Metz. For me he is in the 10 per cent. If you ask me next year I might say on the wing. I love coaches that just talk about football. "We controlled the game from start to finish". "PSG have some great players and I hope we continue to improve". "I can't speak about all the details".

"Of course I had an idea what a great football club was like but I was really impressed by the working culture and the mentality of wanting to be better day-in, day-out and visiting this infrastructure helped me, actually, with my development".
