Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has hailed Paris Saint Germain determination in Wednesday’s dramatic Champions League quarter-final win against Atalanta on Wednesday.
Choupo-Moting netted the winning goal deep into stoppage time to help PSG secure a 2-1 win against the Italians at the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon.
Choupo-Moting told BT Sport: “It was all in all a crazy game, a tough game, a tough opponent and think we showed such a good morale until the last second.
“We believed in ourselves. It wasn’t easy because we had some good occasions. They played a great game, an unbelievable game, but we had some occasions and unfortunately didn’t score.
“When I came on, I thought to myself, ‘We can’t lose, we can’t go home like that’. I was confident in myself, confident in the team and then the rest is a little history of Paris.”
Choupo-Moting said: “It seems like a long time that we (have) never won the Champions League. With such a team, you have to have this ambition. It’s such a big club.
“We will give everything in the next game and continue to believe. Football has its stories.
“We have won already four titles this season, but the most important is this one. We really believe in ourselves and we did it today.
“Everybody knows we have individual top quality but we wanted to show it also as a team and it is a big step today against a very good opponent.
“Respect to Atalanta and I’m very happy that we did it today.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
