The former Marseille attacking midfielder played well after coming on, and was unlucky not to score when his brilliant volley from Moussa Sissoko's cross struck the crossbar.

During his time on the pitch, the 29-year-old took three shots, had a pass accuracy of 87%, put in one cross, and made one block.

Lizarazu, who won the 1998 World Cup and the 2000 European Championship with France, was following the match, and he was impressed with the performance of Payet.
