Choupo-Moting prevents PSG scoring with stunning goal-line clearance

Yes, yes he does play for PSG

Remember when utility Stoke City forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting signed with nefarious oil barrens Paris Saint-Germain, the club with a literal bottomless pit of money, on a free transfer? Do you remember when everybody responded to the move with the same confused expression and mouthing of 'errrr, what?' in unison?

Well, good news! We now know why he was signed.
