After Getting Booed, Neymar Jr Scores Late Stunner for PSG vs. Strasbourg

On Saturday, PSG welcomed Strasbourg at Parc de Princes as Thomas Tuchel's side introduced new players including Keylor Navas and Mauro Icardi, who arrived to Paris from Real Madrid and Inter Milan respectively.

The game was also Neymar Jr's return to the team for the first time this season after a controversial summer, which included a rape allegation, injuries and the player's desire to leave for his former club Barcelona.

Fans made themselves heard, whistled and made offensive gestures during the pre-game warmup.

In addition, when Neymar's name was heard over the loudspeaker, PSG's ultras jeered and whistled.

This would continue during the game everytime he touched the ball, where fans would also scream insults and obscenities at the Brazilian.

The game, however, took a completely different storyline late in stoppage time as Neymar scored a magnificent goal to make it 1-0 and grabbing three points for the defending league champion. 

The goal came in stoppage time after PSG looked like it was only getting a point as Keylor Navas also did his part to ensure a clean sheet. But the Brazilian responded with a stunning finish to take all three points.

Next up for PSG is a Champions League home opener against Real Madrid on Wednesday.
