Cameroon forward Eric Choupo-Moting has lifted his first career title following PSG's French Ligue 1 triumph.

After back-to-back defeats delayed their title party, Lille's stalemate sealed the Parisians' 2018-19 league success. However, Kylian Mbappe's hat-trick later in the day returned the Parc des Princes outfit back to winning ways with their first victory since April 3.

On Sunday evening a 3-1 win over Monaco started the celebrations in the Parc des Princes but Choupo-Moting was not among the 15-man squad called up by Thomas Tuchel.

Choupo-Moting joined PSG from Stoke City last summer and has featured in 28 matches across all competitions with three goals to his credit.

After 33 rounds of games in the French top-flight this term, the Paris outfit has a 19-point lead above second-placed Lille with 84 points in the bag.

Choupo-Moting will hope to clinch his second title when PSG take on Rennes in the Coupe de France final on April 27.

On the international scene, Choupo-Moting's Cameroon have been drawn in Group F at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

They will begin their title defence with a date against Guinea-Bissau on June 25 before locking horns against Ghana and Benin on June 29 and July 2 respectively.
