As an American, when I clicked on the link, I thought to myself "this is going to be a headed goal." tl;dw: it was a headed goal

His jumping ability is insane. Absolute beast in the air

Upvote for actually mentioning McKennie!


westcoastgeek

He dominated his defender. Wow

I want to see it so bad, he's an absolute wrecking ball of physicality. Tailor made for that league.

el_brahmo

Donnarumma wtf


ElComentador

Are you surprised?


el_brahmo

I shouldn‘t but actually I am. He‘s almost 2m he needs to catch the ball if he decides to come out


haterzbalafray

He also did really good saves tonight. Anyway PSG had no choice but to count on Donnarumma now that he is here. (I say that even if I think Navas is better right now but we have to keep Donna plying with his weaknesses)


mmaqp66

Mark my words... He will be the one to prevent them from winning the Champions League this year.


Zanolla94

!remindme 5months


mmaqp66

It already cost them the Champions last year. It will cost them this year too.


Zanolla94

Yup, I just to refer to your comment when it happens on the post of the goal he fucks up an say u/mmaqp66 called it


somechemenggdude

Did the exact same fucking thing in the derby vs icardi in the last minute and they won that game and qualified top 4 1 point ahead of us


el_brahmo

https://youtu.be/QqdY6Pjl75Q this one right? I didn‘t watch your game yesterday. Was the draw deserved for Salzburg or not?


somechemenggdude

Yep I'll never forget that goal. A draw was fair the players played a bit more selfish than usual, a lot of long shots and broken up play, there was also fatigue after the Inter game, the goal they scored was fantastic from okafor but we basically gave him a 1v1. The team was also lost when we did a triple sub in the 60th minute, our lack of midfield depth is gonna be troublesome, pobega isn't ucl level rn


PrisonersofFate

Tbf Mendes and Kimpembe have to do better


Quietly-Seaworthy

Sure but Dona "I will come out but actually no but finally yes but now I’m too slow" is a disgrace for a keeper playing at this level. Every keepers know that once you have decided to go out you have to commit or, we’ll, this…


ScrantonScrangler

Leaving Keylor on the bench, an all time UCL legend, looks more ridiculous every match. Holy fuck Donna looks shit every single match


jopma

I understand wanting to play someone so young but just leave on the fuckin bench and let him learn from one of the best of the era ffs. I'm not even a psg fan and it feels like such a ridiculous decision


Toja1927

Goalkeepers are all about confidence. If you bench him you risk losing his confidence. He has the talent. Making a reactionary decision like benching him would do more harm than good.


jopma

It's not reactionary, I'm saying navas should have been the main one all along and have him be the one that rotates. Courtois was still making stupid mistakes like 5his at his age as well


myirreleventcomment

As a barca fan I never understood their obsession with Donna over navas. Navas has been instrumental in multiple CL wins, Donnaruma has been detrimental to multiple CLs attempts... Yeah yeah young prospect and all but PSG don't seem to care too much about that, they want immediate results, navas would help that


Quietly-Seaworthy

Navas missed many games due to injury two years ago. I guess they don’t want to risk committing to a keeper and having to change for the knock out phase.


ScrantonScrangler

>If you bench him you risk losing his confidence. He is starting now and has no confidence whatsoever. Perhaps he would perform better if he actually had to compete for his spot instead of just having it gifted to him.

Gotta keep up with Haaland's two hattricks tbf


Duck-On-Quac

Side netting merchant tbh


ThePr1d3

I swear he wanted his hattrick. Had he not scored 2 he would have made that pass.


mydinhVictory1

Had he not scored he would have tried to get on the scoresheet


GjillyG

Dunno about that lol, haven't often seen Mbappe square it when he's through on goal


LitCorn33

bro he literally always does that though


ThePr1d3

Mbappé is pretty well known for trading goals for assists though


SpamBusterLoL

No he wouldn't


lemoogle

Lol this sub , the dude has the record for the highest assist count in L1 ever but he's so selfish ! Sigh. Mbappe has had more assists than Neymar for years now and he doesn't have an mbapppe to pass to.


BHYT61

Football fans being reactionary idiots? No way


Static_Shok

Bruh messi with his 99 strength and mboopi with 99 selfishness


pumpingbomba

A goal after a Kostic cross. Never seen that before.


granitibaniti

Did you see the game? They basically ignored him the entire game, even though he could have created so many chances. Really hope Kostić won't regret his move to Juve...


eni22

There were a couple of times where he could have received the ball, that's true. But so far he has been really poor on and off the ball.


granitibaniti

I'd definitely say he was one of the better Juve players today and was part of most chances Juve had. But tbh I'm really not a fan of Allegri's style


eni22

I am not sure I agree but at the same time I think they are all playing terrible football so I don't know.


granitibaniti

And also, of course I'm saying this from a Frankfurt perspective. We know what he is capable of doing, he was by far our best player and our system evolved around him. He was also consistently one of the best players in the Bundesliga and the best Europaleague player with us. I just feel like he can't show that potential with Juve's current playstyle


eni22

That's a problem for all our players. I have to be honest I was expecting more from him coming to Juve but it is not easy and Allegri does not help.


CheekyBastard55

He should've gone to Inter and replaced Perisic, would've worked great in Inzhagi's playstyle.


Ironlandscape

Honestly I watched the game and kostic is not doing anything special. Never dribbles past another player, poor crosses, slow pace. Always turns and pass back. I know Allegri probably isn't helping but at least 1 time he could try something riskier 1vs1


-Manuss-

The Donnarumma special


BHYT61

Idk about Ligue 1 Donnarumma, but CL Donnarumma sure likes to give away gifts


BrodaReloaded

he's also been shit in Ligue 1 this season, did a mistake in every single game


HighTurning

Lets talk about Euro's and WC qualifiers Donnaruma too


[deleted]

He won the Euros and player of the tournament, though

SaltineFiend

Flair does not check out?


Educational-Formal-4

That’s just poor goalkeeping isn’t it


VillainousRocka

Still don't see what everyone sees in Donnarumma - Navas has always looked like the much better keeper IMO


BaronZbimg

Domnarumma has honestly declined since being in Paris. He was only poor with his feet, and insane on his line, there’s a reason he was the top rated goalkeeper prospect in the world for years. Even last year at the Euros he won it for Italy. That said Navas is a top keeper with a ton of experience, PSG has done him dirty


ajof25

He might have declined but he always made mistakes like this one


Golday_ALB

Mistakes which we forgave because he was young


LordAmras

He always had the occasional blunder, but we always point to his age as youth mistakes and ignore them, focusing on the great saves he did. If he doesn't improve they can buy Maignan for 200 millions next year.


haterzbalafray

It was Pochettino that couldn't decide what to do with him which broke his confidence. There is no debate on him starting anymore so we hope he will be a monster again.


Microlabz

He is the italian de gea. Exceptional shotstopper, not that great at most other things a gk needs to do.


EljachFD

They see his age. Its never been about current ability


HighTurning

Can't you see his face as sculpted by any of the great italian artists? His lastname as italian and european as it can get? His shirt selling as good as Courtois?


MrDabollBlueSteppers

> Still don't see what everyone sees in Donnarumma The Euro 2020 award


TheOwlsLie

Come on there’s a reason he was a regular in Serie A at 16


MrDabollBlueSteppers

He was a world class talent and I'm absolutely not saying he's a bad goalkeeper But that tournament is the only reason why people consider him a top 5 goalkeeper in the world


Visazo

Who the hell considers him top 5 in the world?


Strananach

Doesn't mean he was a better keeper with Navas


TheOwlsLie

Never said that


driller_unicorn

I hope PSG meets Sassuolo in semi-finals of UCL this season


Dark-X

PL fans in a nutshell, man. And since this is a PL-dominated sub, that nonsensical take gets upvoted.


heyheyitsandre

He’s a good keeper but nothing special at all, and not worth all the money he gets


7he_Dude

It's the de Gea special, great shot stopper, pretty shit at everything else


ThatIsVasilyGrossman

It's like he thought he could run through all of the players in front of him.

vireshwarsidhu

Oh dear Donna, what are you doing?


SebOnReddit1

He is so absolutely hit or miss


FCWolferJr

I love how the top comments are about Donna and less about McKennie getting to the ball, good jump, strong finish. It goes both ways but damn r/soccer hates giving this guy credit for anything.


abovethewaves1502

It's always been that way. American goal is a guarantee that the top comments are non-Americans making dumb /r/all and 'merica jokes, and then others downplaying it as poor defending/goalkeeping


space_coyote6

This one is kinda both. As a GK if you come for the cross you gotta get closer than that, still great work from McKennie to win the header


MyMainIsCringe

In /r/soccer all american goals are just flukes.


libertydabbing

American Players and Women Players get the same treatment when it comes to the r/soccer experts. Just comment on the bad defense for guaranteed upvotes


TogashiIsIshida

He is american


loyal_achades

Tbf Donna coming off his line and completely failing to secure the ball is more notable than McKennie scoring another goal on a set piece. McKennie has been insane in the air for a while now.


FCWolferJr

More notable is a weird way to put it. As if his insane jumping isn't notable? Do we somehow discount Messi when he runs through a team to score just because he's done it for a while now? I'm not saying Donna coming out isn't notable at all, obviously he's way off his line but just feels like there's a consistent bias against this man and most Americans


IntermediateSwimmer

While there's definitely an element of truth here, just watch Donnaruma on this goal haha. I think it's self explanatory why it's the top comments


T_elic

Haha Donnaruma what are you doing

Imagine giving Kostic all the time in the world to send in one of his lethal crosses. I have never seen him be able to do that with this much space and no care in the world. No pressure on him at all. What a joke.
