Video: We Have No Idea How Mbappé Scored This Backheel Goal

Paris Saint-Germain had their opening goal from Neymar Jr. waived off after a VAR review but in the second half, Kylian Mbappé scored a no-doubter against FC Nantes at the Parc des Princes.

Neymar sprung the attack before picking out Angel Di Maria down the right flank. The Argentine then picked out Mbappé with his patented left-footed curling pass into the box. What the Frenchman did next is nothing short of otherworldly.

Mbappé paused for a second as he realized the pass was slightly behind him. He then stuck his right foot out and twisted his body to execute one of the best backheel goals you’ll ever see.

There was absolutely nothing Nantes goalkeeper Alban Lafont could do. Mbappé’s shot was tucked neatly into the corner and there was no VAR to save Nantes this time as PSG went up 1-0.
