Mohammed Rabiu played a part in Evian’s massive quarter-final shock win over high-spending giants PSG in the Coupe de France on Wednesday.
The Ghana midfielder was substituted after 85 minutes as the hosts went on to win 4-1 on penalties after both sides have tied 1-1 after extra-time.
Rabiu played a key role in the midfield denying PSG’s top stars the chance of dominating the midfield to help his side secure the shock victory.
The Black Stars player was also denied a goal by goalkeeper Douchez who palmed away his effort as his performance was hailed by analysts.
“A workhorse in the middle of the park who never stopped running. Stifled the threat of the attack from deep and put in an impressive shift for his side,” Goal.com said of Rabiu’s performance during the match.
Javier Pastore had put the Parisian side 1-0 up after 10 minutes before Saber Khlifa levelled the scores for the hosts on the stroke of half time.
Thiago Motta received a straight red late on in extra time, while Ibrahimovic fired a free kick over with the final kick of the game.
