Nantes forward Majeed Waris delighted by 'surprise' win over champions PSG
Ghana forward Majeed Waris was left speechless after Nantes secured a massive win in Paris over champions Paris Saint Germain in Ligue 1 on Wednesday night.
Waris scored in the Canaries 3-2 victory last night after another spectacular win over the weekend, when they beat Olympique Lyonnais.
"What a night. +3 let's finish it off this weekend," he posted Twitter.
Dani Alves unleashed a long range drive into the top corner in the 19th minute to hand PSG the lead.
PSG’s lead did not last as Diego Carlos pulled the hosts level with a long-range header three minutes later.
Nantes fans at Stade de la Beaujoire were sent into ecstasy after Majeed Waris tapped into an empty net the stroke of half time.
Diego Carlos grabbed his second goal of the evening in the 52nd minute after latching on to a cross from corner kick to give Nantes a 3-1 lead.
Substitute Matehan Guclu halved the deficit for PSG with a 89th minute strike.
PSG need a win to clinch the Ligue 1 title but have faltered in their last two games, losing 5-1 to Lille on Sunday.
Waris was taken off in the 90th minute while compatriot Enock Kwarteng lasted 83 minutes.
Waris has provided 2 assists and scored 5 goals in 28 league games for the side in the ongoing campaign.
