With an assist as well, the 27-year-old winger helped Nantes defeat Toulouse to claim its first Ligue 1 victory and three points of the season.

In Nantes’ easy 3-1 victory against Toulouse on Sunday, the Super Eagles forward helped the home team pull off a comeback victory with one goal and one assist.

Moses Simon, Evann Gruessand, and Mostafa Mohammed were all deserving candidates for player of the match award as they each made a substantial contribution to Nantes’ victorious end to their losing streak.

After breaking a run of four games without a victory in any competition, the defending French Cup champions are off to a solid start this season.

Nantes featured in four games already this season but failed to win any of them, including the Super Cup defeat against PSG.

Meanwhile, Terem Moffi grabbed a brace against Clermont Foot 63 in the fourth gameweek of French Ligue 1 for FC Lorient to kick off his goal scoring for the season.Moses Simon and Terem Moffi on target over the weekend in French Ligue 1

The Nigerian attacker scored twice for Lorient in their victory at home in the French Ligue 1 to earn player of the match honors.

Lorient maintained their strong start to the 2022–23 French Ligue 1 season with a 2-1 victory against Clermont Foot at home thanks solely to a brace from Terem Moffi.

In the 24th minute, Moffi scored his first goal from the penalty spot. The Nigerian took the penalty kick with composure and misdirected the goalkeeper.

In a one-on-one opportunity in the 41st minute, the 23-year-old Lorient attacker increased his team’s score by escaping the defenders in his own half and skillfully navigating the goalie to finish into an open net.

Les Merlus is still unbeaten in the French Ligue 1 this season after winning two of their opening three games and drawing the third.
