ACHRAF HAKIMI was momentarily blindsided during PSG’s Champions League clash against Manchester City as his contact lens FELL OUT.
Mauricio Pochettino’s summer signing had to take a quick break from the action as he put his misbehaving lens back into place.Hakimi showed impressive skill to quickly slot the lens back into place[/caption] He managed to re-fit the lens without a mirror or the help of the PSG backroom team[/caption] He was powerless to stop Sterling from scoring Manchester City’s equaliser though[/caption]
Hakimi did remarkably well to re-fit the lens considering he didn’t have a mirror in front of him to help lodge it back into place.
Added to that he had to do it in the heat of battle with a packed-out Etihad Stadium watching on.
The victory meant Pep Guardiola and Co qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League as winners of Group A.
PSG are also through, but will have to face a group winner in the next round after qualifying second.
Right-back Hakimi signed for Les Parisiens in July for a reported £59million from Inter.

Football players are no strangers to bizarre incidents like Hakimi’s contact lens malfunction on Wednesday night.
Arsenal defender Gabriel has lost TWO teeth while out on the pitch within the last year.
And remarkably both were against Brighton, but in SEPARATE games.
The most recent of those came just last month in the drab 0-0 draw on the South Coast.
The toothless ace spent several minutes after the incident looking for his missing gnasher.
He was then seen walking around the Amex pitch looking for something – believed to be his tooth – at full-time.
