Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel Di Maria salvaged a point for his side and delivered one of the UEFA Champions League’s best goals from Wednesday, all with one swing of his left boot.

In the third minute of injury time against Napoli, Di Maria curled a shot just inside the far post, past a diving David Ospina to give PSG a 2-2 draw. With the result, PSG remain a point behind Napoli in third place in Group C.
