PSG squad arrives in Singapore for International Champions Cup
French league champions Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) arrived in Singapore on Wednesday (Jul 25) ahead of the 2018 International Champions Cup (ICC), which kicks off at the National Stadium on Thursday.
The team received a warm welcome from fans despite the absence of Brazilian superstar Neymar and World Cup-winning French striker Kylian Mbappe.
Club captain Thiago Silva as well as forwards Angel Di Maria and Edinson Cavani have also been left out of the squad. They are on an extended break after featuring at the World Cup.
Fans were nonetheless excited by the presence of legendary Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and German midfielder Julian Draxler who took time to pose for photos and sign autographs.
PSG stars Adrien Rabiot, Kevin Trapp and Marco Verratti are also in Singapore.
The squad list was announced by the club on Twitter on Tuesday evening.
