The Sky Blues have been called in as a last minute replacement for Espanyol who have pulled out from the series of matches.

Sydney will face Neymar's side in Suzhou, 100km north of Shanghai, on July 30 as part of PSG's China tour.

Sydney chairman Scott Barlow said: “We are delighted to have been invited to represent Australia to play one of the world’s biggest football clubs and brands in Paris Saint Germain.

“It shows the esteem in which Sydney FC is held across world football.

“There is fantastic alignment between our two clubs. Two football clubs representing two of the world’s most iconic cities.

“This game will receive global attention and once again raise the profile of our club on the world stage.”

Alongside Neymar and Mbappe, PSG feature a host of world renowned stars including their Brazilian captain Thiago Silva, Uruguayan striker Edison Cavani and former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder Angel Di Maria.

Coach Steve Corica added: “It will be a fantastic experience for our players to be lining up against such world class opposition and great preparation as we prepare to defend our A-League crown.

“Every player wants to test themselves against the world’s best and they don’t come much better than the players at PSG.

“Nevertheless, our boys will be ready to prove that they can match it against the world’s toughest teams.”

PSG will also face Italian giants Inter Milan and Coupe de France winners Stade Rennes FC on their three match tour.
