This time last week, former Newcastle United striker Emmanuel Riviere was without a goal since 2015, however the Frenchman had a rather eventful debut for new club Metz in their 5-1 defeat to PSG over the weekend – scoring a goal but also missing an open one.
Riviere – who scored just 3 goals in 31 games on Tyneside – secured a summer move to Metz at the back end of August and made a superb start to life back in France, getting his side on level terms against big spending PSG:

It was the strikers his first goal since 2015 (yes, he’s a striker) and just when it seemed he was set to enjoy a new lease of life in his homeland, he got back up to his old tricks with this moment to forget:

Riviere had the chance here to put his side 2-1 up and given PSG ran out 5-1 winners, it turned out to be a pretty costly miss!
