Paris Saint-Germain continued its march towards next week’s Coupe de France final with a dominating 7-0 statement friendly win over Waasland-Beveren. As was the case against Le Havre, PSG had a variety of contributors, with many putting forth man-of-the-match-like performances.
One player who will soon not forget the performance is defender Loic Mbe Soh. The 19-year-old played in 60 minutes over the final two periods of the game and scored a goal. Following the fixture, he spoke to PSG TV about the team’s performance and his hope that these kinds of showings will carry on for the upcoming pivotal games.
“We are feeling good physically, we are working together,” Mbe Soh said. “We are all involved. We, the youngsters, are trying to pick up as much game time as possible. We are very happy with the victory and we hope to continue like this. Huge challenges await us.”
As mentioned, he scored a goal to top off the 7-0 win. While the goal did not come in front of a packed Parc des Princes crowd, it is still memorable to score at such an iconic venue. Mbe Soh alluded to this and spoke about his feeling when he recorded the goal.
“Scoring my first goal for Paris Saint-Germain, at the Parc des Princes is a real moment of pride for me,” Mbe Soh said. “It’s brilliant! I am very happy to have scored this goal in front of my family, but above all, to have secured the victory.”
Look for Mbe Soh to feature in the team’s friendly contest against Celtic FC next week.
