Skill of the Week: Stephane Sessegnon (PSG)

Stand up and take a bow.

This footage comes from Wednesday match between PSG and Lens in the Coupe De La Ligue, which the Parisians won 2-nil.

24-year-old Beninese international Stephane Sessegnon found himself penned in by the corner flag, surrounded by the watchful eyes of three covering Lens defenders. Possession would surely be lost.


In a trick the Harry Houdini himself would have been proud of, Sessegnon conjured up a supreme piece of skill to free himself, before delivering a wonderful cross in the box that the home side should have converted.
