Following defeats to Monaco and Lille, Metz travelled to the Parc de Prince to face a star-studded Paris St. Germain side highly tipped to retain their title.
Ghanaian central defender John Boye (33) monstrous at the heart of Metz's back three tonight – tremendous tracking of the possible PSG lines of attack & gutsy midfield interception play throughout.

It took a Julian Draxler 93rd minute strike to hand PSG the win and that struggle to close the game was largely down to the exploits of John Boye at the heart of the Metz defense.
Boye provided solidity and good anticipation to cut out danger throughout the entire match.
At age 33, few expected that it is John Boye’s pace that would become the highlight of the game.
A video has surfaced of Boye sprinting past Angel Di Maria in trademark fashion and the internet is loving it.
