Kylian Mbappe scored twice as hosts move seven points clear in Ligue 1. Meanwhile, he hugged a child who ran on to the pitch and signed an autograph in the closing stages of Paris St-Germain’s win over Amiens.
Mbappe scored two sublime goals for his side. As the game entered injury time, he found time to sign an autograph for a young PSG fan. The boy ran on to the pitch with stewards chasing after him.
But Mbappe walked off the Parc des Princes field with the crying boy and signed a book he produced from his coat.
PSG crushed Amiens 4-1 on Saturday to go into the Ligue 1 Christmas break seven points clear of Olympique de Marseille with a game in hand.
PSG took the lead when Amiens attack broke down. A precise pass from Neymar found Mbappe. The 21-year-old French man sprinted forward and coolly chipping the ball past keeper Regis Gurtner in the 10th minute.
Gurtner pulled offspring of fine saves to keep his side in the game. But, the Amiens defense was immediately breached after the break. Mauro Icardi forced the ball in towards Neymar who rattled it home.
Mbappe’s second came from another perfect pass. This time, Angel di Maria fired a superb first-time shot to make it 3-0 to the home side in the 65th minute.
Later in the game, central defender Abdou Diallo and Thiago Silva were substituted due to injuries. The situation could not hold back PSG. Stiven Mendoza found enough space to pull a goal back before Icardi struck six minutes from time.
