Messi receives rousing welcome in his much anticipated debut for PSG
Lionel Messi formally played his first competitive game for Paris Saint-Germain at which he received a wonderful reception at the Stade Auguste Delaune against Reims.
He was applauded by many of the 21,000 fans in attendance while warming up.
Minutes later, he replaced Neymar in the 65th minute and the buzz around the stadium was palpable. Is this the greatest substitution in football history? It could well be.
The Argentinian was unable to make the squad for recent fixtures against Strasbourg and Brest, and therefore sat in the stands with his fellow teammates. But fans finally got a glimpse of Messi on Sunday night.
