Paris Saint-Germain marquee forward Neymar said he was nervous about hurting himself in Waasland-Beveren ‘s 7-0 friendly win in a one-sided feisty contest.
The French side after dominating the Ligue 1 are set to focus their attention to the UEFA Champions League game against Atalanta.
“Yes, we were a little scared. We are here for a friendly match so those types of things should not have been happening.” – Neymar said in the post-match interview.
PSG lead after Aleksandar Vukotic’s own goal before seven minutes, when Neymar converted a spot kick.
In the 47th minute, Icardi and Neymar collaborated for an audacious penalty try. Whilst in the second half, Mbappe, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s brace and Loic Mbe Soh’s last-gasp effort completed the scoring.
“We are here to prepare ourselves, but also to be careful. But us too, we gave them a little bit back, so there are no problems.” – he added.
“I was very happy to come back and play at home, with some fans as well. We are preparing little by little to get to the maximum then we will be in the finals Champions League. The rest is not very important.” – the Brazilian concluded.
On 30 April 2020, Paris Saint-Germain were awarded the championship following the cancellation of the 2019–20 season.
