How Reims keeper Reacted After Seeing Messi For The First Time In His PSG Debut

French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain fans had their long awaited day as their world class free agent summer signing 34 year-old Argentine international Lionel Messi made his dream debut in their 2-0 thrashing of league minors Reims. With Messi starting from the bench, Kylian Mbappe stole the show once again as his brace was enough to see off the stubborn Reims after a series of fine saves from Reims goalkeeper Predrag Rajkovic.

The six-time balon d'Or winner made a 24-minute cameo after replacing former Barca teammate Neymar Junior in the 66th minute. Although he was unable to mark his debut with a goal, Messi made a great excitement at the Stade Auguste Delaune Stadium as home supporters gave him a rousing reception despite being an opposition player.

The excitement was not only on the Reims fans but also extended to the Reims players, with shot-stopper Rajkovic, seeing Messi for the first time, approached him for a photo with his young son.
