    Late goals help PSG edge out West Brom


    FRENCH champions Paris Saint-Germain laboured to a 2-1 win over West Brom in their first pre-season friendly on Wednesday with mercurial midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa making his debut.

    Not helped by torrential rain and a soggy pitch in Austria, PSG defender David Luiz managed to give the English Premier League club the lead after 15 minutes, putting the ball past his own keeper Kevin Trapp, off a cross from Saido Berahino.

    However, second-half substitutes Adrien Rabiot (62nd minute) and Lucas (79th minute) gave PSG the win.
