After which Taylor Adams scored a goal in the 88th minute to get Leipzig to make a goal. "He is the one who picks the team and if you don't like it then go and buy your own club, build your own team and choose your own 11", Cerezo said. At the end I think we were a bit better in the final third and that was the difference, ' Nagelsmann told BT Sport after the match.

"They are a team full of stars", Nagelsmann added, referring to Neymar and fellow PSG forward Kylian Mbappe.

"I am not your typical goal scorer, but I am happy I could help the team", said Adams, who came on as a substitute. This was the match that we needed to produce and we did so!
