The Cameroon global was on duty for Paris Saint-Germain when they took on Strasbourg in a Ligue 1 match played at Parc des Princes. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting couldn't find the net from a matter of inches against Strasburg last night and well, nobody could quite process how it happened.
Asked about his miss post-match, Choupo-Moting said: "Even for me it's hard to explain". Waiting outside the box, Anthony Goncalves calmly walked toward the ball and hammered it back to silence the Parc des Princes with a powerful strike that left goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon stranded.
"I wondered if I was offside or not".
The mind-boggling miss wound up costing PSG the game, having to settle for a 2-2 draw against Strasbourg, which represents the first time this season the Parisian heavyweights gave up points at their home stadium.

Mark Meadows, R-N.C., a Trump confidant, called shifting the debate to 2021 "a very pragmatic decision". But the truth is that the Republicans do own the health care issue - probably any party in power would.
When everyone thought it was going to be 2-1, Choupo-Moting thought of stopping the ball on the goalline.
Strasbourg earned a point against the defending Ligue 1 champions which Choupo-Mouting will live to regret for a while. "I have missed a lot more than you have this season, we stay united as a group and we will support you until the end", Mbappe wrote on Twitter.
In an eventful game, Choupo-Moting put the hosts ahead in the 13th minute when Colin Dagba beat the off-side trap down the right side to deliver a precise cross for the Cameroon global, who scored with a calm finish.
