ZIMBABWEAN midfielder, Marshall Munetsi played 75 minutes for Stade de Reims in their 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain in a French Ligue 1 fixture played at Parc des Princes on Sunday.

Munetsi was replaced by fellow African Kamory Doumbia from Mali with 15 minutes to go. At that stage, Reims were a goal down after Brazilian Neymar had put PSG ahead in the 51st minute.

PSG were reduced to 10-man after Italian midfielder Marco Verratti was sent off in the 59th minute.

Just when PSG thought they had secured the three points, England Under-21 Folarin Balogun found the equaliser for Reims in 95 minutes, 30 seconds.

“Amazing performance from the team @StadeDeReims we keep going until the end,’’ Munetsi posted on Twitter.
