The French Ligue 1 has celebrated Nigerian forward,Terem Moffi’s goal goal in Lorient’s home game against Reims on Saturday, Completesports.com reports.
Reims defeated Lorient 2-1 at the Stade du Mostoir.
Moffi’s 32nd minute goal for Lorient was sandwiched between Arber Zeneli and El Bilal Toure’s 17th and 59th minutes goals respectively for Reims. But the Nigerian’s execution of the goal was sheer class act. He took on four opponent as he went on a solo run from the midfield, then cleverly sidestepped all of them before equally leaving the goalkeeper for dead and shot home from a tight left angle.
Ligue 1 took to their official Twitter handle to applaud the great goal with a video clip of the goal.
“A goal that makes you go [crazy],” the Tweet reads.
A goal that makes you go 🤯
