Watch Xeka score rocket as Lille beat PSG to win Trophee des Champions in French season opener

XEKA scored a stunning winner for Lille in their 1-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain.

His first-half rocket clinched Lille's first Trophee des Champions victory.


The winner came just before half-time with Portugal midfielder Xeka receiving the ball just outside the penalty area and hammering the ball into the net.

PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas could not get close to the fierce strike as the power was too much for him.

Lille's victory ended PSG's eight-year winning run in the season-opening Trophee des Champions.

The annual curtain raiser takes place between the Ligue 1 winners and the Coupe de France holders.

It was a disappointing start to the season for Mauricio Pochettino's side as they lost to the surprise champions.

Neither superstars Kylian Mbappe or Neymar were involved for PSG after their busy summer of international football.
