WHAT HAPPENED? Haise was a major part of a euphoric response to Lens' 3-1 defeat of PSG Sunday night. He led the crowd in chants, with a packed stadium singing in delight after the team cut their visitors' Ligue 1 lead to just four points.
WHAT THEY SAID: Lens players chant in front of the crowd after every game, and Haise has been reluctant to get involved. But he did so after the win, leading the cries of: "What's happened here? We've rattled them!"
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Lens recorded a convincing 3-1 win over the league leaders, and are now within striking distance in Ligue 1. While a proper title challenge is still far away, Haise's side appear to have given themselves a chance.
