Kylian Mbappe and Lee Kang-in goals help PSG win French Champions Trophy

Paris Saint-Germain won the Champions Trophy on Wednesday, defeating Toulouse 2-0 because of goals from Lee Kang-in and Kylian Mbappe in the first half.

PSG took the lead in the third minute thanks to Lee, who was playing his last match before leaving for South Korea’s Asian Cup in Qatar. Just before the half, Mbappe scored an incredible second goal, as Paris won the Champions Trophy for the tenth time in the past eleven seasons.

This season’s edition was originally scheduled to take place in Thailand in August, however, it was postponed and held in PSG’s home stadium rather than a neutral ground.

The advantage of being at home gave Luis Enrique’s squad, the reigning Ligue 1 champions, the upper hand, as they opened the score on one of their first attacks with Lee shooting in from Ousmane Dembele’s soft first-time cross into the middle.

Lee scored his third goal of the season, and he is expected to play a key role as South Korea’s aim to win the Asian Cup for the first time since 1960.

“We were exceptional in the first half. It was our best 45 minutes of my time here,” PSG coach Luis Enrique stated after winning his first trophy since leaving Barcelona in 2017.
