Neymar scores but PSG draw
On-loan Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun ran through to score a remarkable 96th-minute equaliser as Reims held 10-man Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain to a 1-1 stalemate on Sunday.
It looked like Neymar's strike early in the second half would be enough for the Parisians to take all three points despite substitute Marco Verratti being sent off shortly after that goal.
However, an impressive Reims side got the draw they richly deserved when Balogun broke away to fire home right at the death.
Neymar stuns Mbappe with freekick
Sports Brief earlier reported that Neymar stepped up to perfect his freekick before the game and the Brazil international underlined why he is touted as one of the most gifted players in the modern game.
The 30-year-old smashed an inch-perfect freekick which zoomed straight into the top corner. His effort left everyone drooling including Mbappe who was left in awe of Neymar's set-piece brilliance.
The PSG duo has literally become the best of friends since the return of club football after the World Cup break and have translated their bromance onto the pitch as well.
