Must Read

Lionel Messi opened the scoring and Neymar scored twice as Paris Saint-Germain beat Nantes 4-0 on Sunday to win the French soccer Champions Trophy.

Messi scored midway through the first half. After receiving a pass from Neymar that the defense managed to deflect, the Argentine star dribbled past goalkeeper Alban Lafont to finish with class.

Neymar scored with a masterful free kick when the first-half stoppage time was in play. The Brazilian striker nailed the ball in the upper left corner.

Christophe Galtier’s team went into the break with a 2-0 lead at Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv, the venue for the match between the league and cup champions for the second year in a row.

Veteran defender Sergio Ramos made it 3-0 in the 57th minute with a shot from close range and Neymar sentenced in the 82nd by converting from a penalty after a foul by Jean-Charles Castelletto, who was sent off.

Galtier, who won Lille the league champion against all odds in 2021, is already boasting his first title with PSG . He replaced Mauricio Pochettino after the Argentine’s dismissal.

Antoine Kombouare, who previously managed PSG, led Nantes to their first trophy in 21 years by winning the Coupe de France.
