Watch ex-Man Utd star Herrera score a screamer after incredible Neymar assist ahead of PSG’s clash with Atalanta

ANDER HERRERA scored an absolute stunner in Paris Saint-Germain training after being set up in incredible fashion by Neymar.

And the pair will no doubt be hoping they can replicate the sensational goal when they take on Atalanta this week.

As preparations continue for the Ligue 1 giants’ Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday, Herrera staked a claim for a starting spot with his beauty of a strike with his so-called weaker left foot.

Herrera, 30, took to Instagram to share the clip with his 3.8million followers.

He wrote: “When you realise you are left footed but you are already 30 years old…” followed by head-in-hands and tongue-out emojis.

Neymar stood over the dead ball in the D, rubbing his hands in excitement.

But rather than take the shot himself, he produced a sublime piece of skill to flick it up and then back over his head.

And Herrera latched on to it with perfect timing to unleash an unstoppable drive, giving the goalkeeper absolutely no chance.

The reaction from his team-mates was one of awe and shock as the former Manchester United midfielder ran away in celebration, falling to his knees and hugging Neymar.

PSG saw off Borussia Dortmund in the last 16 back in March and will go into the one-legged tie with Atalanta as favourites to progress to the semis, even without Kylian Mbappe.

The French superstar sustained ankle ligament damage in the Coupe de France final against Saint-Etienne.

But with no Mbappe available for Thomas Tuchel, on this video evidence he could even be tempted to gamble with Herrera up front if he can replicate his finish in training.

The Spaniard has played just 19 times in his debut season with PSG, missing large chunks of the campaign with thigh and calf injuries, and scored just one goal.
