Would Mauro Icardi see a ray of light at the end of the tunnel?
Placardized by PSG, left by Wanda Nara, the Argentinian found a little joy on the ground at the same time as the way to the nets.
Loaned until the end of the season by the club of the capital, in Turkey, the new number 99 of Galatasaray split a nice goal, Saturday evening in friendly.
It was he who scored the winning goal of the match against Istanbulspor (2-1), after the hour mark, from the penalty spot.
A subtle and perfectly executed panenka, a gesture full of confidence for a striker who has been sorely lacking in recent months.

From Moustoir to Nef Stadyumu in Istanbul
Because this achievement by Icardi at the Nef Stadyumu in Istanbul, although part of a friendly framework in the middle of the international break, is his first … in 2022. The former Inter Milan goleador no longer had planted since a trip from Paris to Lorient in Ligue 1 (1-1), December 22, 2021. Turkey, land of youth?
Since his goal at Moustoir, the 29-year-old striker dragged out his sentence during the few appearances offered by Mauricio Pochettino, predecessor of a Christophe Galtier who never wanted to count on the Argentinian.
On the banks of the Bosphorus, Mauro Icardi has so far only played one official match in the Turkish Süper Lig, coming on for 28 minutes against Konyaspor (2-1 victory, September 16).
Arrived in Paris in 2019, first in the form of a loan, then in permanent transfer a year later (50 million euros), the center-forward scored 38 goals in 92 games with Paris Saint-Germain.
