Kylian Mbappe tried to score a goal with his hand during Stade Reims vs PSG in the Coupe de la Ligue on Wednesday night.
PSG ran riot against Stade Reims in the French Cup on Wednesday night, running away with a 3-0 win despite benching Mauro Icardi and Angel Di Maria thanks to goals from Marquinhos, Tanguy Kouassi and an own goal early on in the match.
PSG’s talisman Kylian Mbappe failed to get his name on the scoreboard and it appears that he was desperate to get his name there as the young Frenchman blatantly slapped the ball into Reims goal with his hands during the closing stages of the match.

Neymar and Mbappe brilliantly linked inside the box to fox the defenders. However, Neymar fell while attempting to send the ball back to Mbappe. The French international managed to gather the ball. However, he slipped in the process and as a last-ditch effort, he smacked the ball into the back of the net.

Mbappe was rightly carded for the attempt. However, Mbappe managed to see the funny side of things as he himself shared a video of the event on his social media.
