Kylian Mbappe: Micah Richards' wild reaction to PSG star's goal v Real

The Champions League last-16 draw pitted two of the world’s best teams against each other.

Paris Saint-Germain came second in their group and there was a high chance they’d be drawn to play against an elite team.

And that’s exactly what happened as they were drawn to play Real Madrid.

Expectations were high and the two sides delivered as they produced a quite incredible 180 minutes of football.

PSG led 2-0 with 30 minutes of the tie to play, but Real Madrid produced an incredible comeback.

Karim Benzema scored three times in 17 minutes to stun PSG and dump them out of the competition.

Despite being on the losing side, Kylian Mbappe was in scintillating form in both games.

He scored the only goal of the game in the first leg and he opened the scoring in the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Micah Richards, who was working as a pundit on CBS Sports, couldn’t contain his excitement after he scored the opener in Spain.

Mbappe latched on to a pass from Neymar, smashed the ball past Thibaut Courtois and then did a knee-slide in front of the camera.

And Richards decided he was going to imitate Mbappe’s celebration in the CBS Sports studio. Watch the moment below…

Thierry Henry, who was working as a pundit alongside Richards, was baffled.

The Frenchman just sat there open mouthed and stared at the former Man City defender.

Henry has been working alongside Richards on CBS Sports for some time but even he can’t believe some of his actions on screen.

We would love to have seen Roy Keane’s reaction to seeing Richards’ knee-slide.

Keane gets on with Richards very well but he would most likely have been horrified.
