Nigeria’s dazzling attacker, Victor Moses continued his fine form in the pre-season so far with a 65th minute equalizer against Paris Saint Germain on Saturday.
Chelsea had conceded its fifth goal of the pre-season in the 24th minute and looked well to suffer a second defeat when John Obi Mikel lost possession on the edge of the box, giving the ball to PSG’s Jean-Kevin Agustin whose resulting strike hit the post with the rebound falling for Ibrahimovic, who struck the ball coolly past Asmir Begovic.
Following a largely unimpressive first half, Jose Mourinho’s three changes at half-time – Courtois for Begovic, Ramires for Mikel and Kurt Zouma for Gary Cahill – revived Chelsea in the second half. And the improved performance was rewarded in the 64th minutes when Cesc Fabegas delivered a delightful chipped pass for Victor Moses which he finished with aplomb to draw Chelsea level.
Despite the multitude of changes that followed, with Columbian striker, Radmael Falcao making his Chelsea debut with eagerness to impress his Stamford Bridge employers, the match ended 1-1. Falcao would later score Chelsea’s first penalty in the resultant shoot-out that the Premier League champions won 6-5.
