Foot PSG – PSG: Mbappé cheated, the record goal had to be canceled

Sunday evening, PSG did well in Lille. By the magnitude of the score but also by the way with a domination from the first to the last minute. It’s the least we can say since Mbappé took eight seconds to score. A quick goal, too quick to be true?

Sunday evening, it was not necessary to arrive late at the Decathlon Arena for the kickoff of LOSC-PSG. More than an expression of a video game commentator, a reality with Kylian Mbappé’s opener after eight seconds. A goal scored at record speed, well almost. In the wake of the match, the former Caennais Michel Rio disputed the notion of record for Kylian Mbappé, defending his performance of 1992 evidence at the key. Stopwatch in hand and video on screen, Rio claims to have scored after 7 seconds 72 against 8 seconds 06 for the PSG striker, the former SM Caen player admitting all the same to be happy to see that it is a player of the caliber of number 7 of PSG which is at its height in this classification of express scorers.

Mbappé left too quickly, what is the VAR doing?

After the record, it is now the validity of the goal that is under attack. Social networks were ignited by the very start of the action at the start of the LOSC-PSG meeting. If Kylian Mbappé was able to trap the Lille defense, was it not because he had taken a little lead? As proof, OMRUN, a very popular Marseille supporter, made a freeze frame where we see the Parisian player already well advanced in the Lille camp.

Mbappé who leaves before kick-off to score 8 seconds later. Clearly the goal should have been disallowed if VAR had done its job. When it’s to reshoot a peno for a half toe Turpin is stronger. RMCsport, the team a reaction? “, he posted. On the various viewings of the action at reduced speed, the position of Kylian Mbappé is clearly limited.

Football’s Law 8 kick-off states that a player cannot have his entire body in the opposing court until the ball has left his moving partner’s foot. Mbappé’s body is mostly in the Dogues camp but a doubt persists on one of his feet. The camera plane is not oriented well enough to determine whether it stays on the line or goes beyond it. One thing is certain, even if it doesn’t look like much, the VAR should have analyzed the action in detail as is the case with offsides. This was not the case on Sunday evening, fueling an endless debate which will quickly be forgotten, even if contrary to what the advertising broadcast before the Ligue 1 matches says, the referees in charge of the video were not in the process of to eat without looking at the screens.
