PSG grab French League Cup win

PSG grab French League Cup win

Neymar came up with a bizarre new celebration after scoring in Wednesday's (Jan 10) French League Cup quarter-final. The Brazilian superstar took off his boot and then juggled it on his head after coolly slotting home from the penalty spot in the 53rd minute.

Adrien Rabiot sealed the victory against 10-man Amiens by heading home in the 78th minute although it took referee Nicolas Rainville about a minute to confirm the goal after another glitch in the goal line technology.

Neymar revealed the reasoning behind his celebration by taking to Instagram after the game. He had dedicated the goal to a friend of his, and shared a picture of him juggling a beer on his head. The 25-year-old scored from the spot as the holders Paris Saint-Germain secured a scrappy win to advance to semi-finals.

Amiens played for nearly an hour with 10 men after goalkeeper Regis Gurtner was sent off in the 34th minute for a clumsy foul on Kylian Mbappe outside the penalty area on Wednesday.

In the absence of striker Edinson Cavani, who was left out of Unai Emery's squad after returning late from his holidays, PSG dominated but struggled to find an edge.

The visitors finally broke the deadlock in the second half after Neymar was fouled in the box by Amiens skipper Thomas Monconduit. The Brazil star scored his 20th goal in all competitions by sending reserve goalkeeper Jean-Christophe Bouet the wrong way.

PSG was in control afterward and Adrien Rabiot made it 2-0 with a header with 12 minutes left.
