Ligue 1: Nigerian Forward Moffi’s Late Goal Sinks PSG

Ligue 1: Nigerian Forward Moffi’s Late Goal Sinks PSG

Terem Moffi was the hero for struggling Lorient as his late strike earned his side a hardfought 3-2 win against champions Paris Saint-Germain in Sunday’s Ligue 1 fixture, Completesports.com reports.

Moffi, who came on in the 61st minute, scored in the 91st minute to give Lorient the unlikely win and hand new manager Maurizio Pochettino his first defeat as PSG head coach.

The 21-year-old took his goals in the French topflight to six in 15 appearances.

Also, he has now scored a goal in each of his last five league games. 

Other scorers for Lorient were Laurent Abergel (36th minute) and Yoane Wissa (80th minute).

PSG’s two goals (penalties) were scored by star forward Neymar (45th, 58th minutes).

Prior to Sunday’s game Lorient had lost their last six home games against PSG.

They occupy 18th position on 18 points and PSG are second on 45 points in the league table.

    Hmmm… Double wahala for Super Eagles handler. I’ve been personally ignoring the call for this guy cuz we obviously have lots of options in attack but I’ve been following Lorient’s game up lately and he has been on fire in all. 5 goals in last 5 games. And a Match winner against Top side PSG. That’s impressive. He’s in form!

      @Chairmanfemi, omato ijómętakę? How are you doing gentleman.

      Well, not that we don’t have strikers that can score goals but how to use them to produce more goals is what is missing in that team.

      I hope we remember the squad Nigeria took to the last world cup and Afcon tournament?

      That team can win anything but unfortunately they didn’t achieve anything. What happened in those tournaments?

      Our issue here is similar to a rich man who bought a brand new car but he doesn’t know how to drive the car.

      Do we have to blame the car or the owner of the vehicle?

      What is the problem of Super Eagles. The Coach or players?

      I keep asking this question but no answers because deep down inside them, they know the truth.

      We will keep having good young players but to build a solid team for Nigeria won’t be easy because those in charge of the team can’t go beyond this level period.

      If you don’t believe me Chairmanfemi, it’s almost five years now that they have been trying to build this team if I’m not mistaken abi?

      Upon having foreign based players and manager, we have not reaching our level yet.

      My point here is that, the team we have is good enough to get the job done. Strengthen the team is good if we have other options but the primary focus is how to build a team that can play and win in any tournament.

      I’m not impressed and we deserve more. God bless Nigeria!!!

       
    • In terms of consistency and recent performances, the ratings of super eagles strikers should be:
      1. Onuachu
      2. Sadiq
      3. Simeon
      4. Moffi
      5. Awoniyi
      6. Olayinka
      These are the players whose names we hear scoring goals for their clubs in europe. They are the ones who have been scoring goals in the past 5 weeks.
      Osimhen is number one of course for the Super Eagles, but he isnt back to goal scoring form yet.

        Just a gentle reminder. You forgot to add Junior Ajayi and Fanendo Adi.

          • Dr. Drey 1 month ago

            Thank youu….God bless you….thank you for reminding us that Mr Segun Dare has also ordered us to reserve 4 slots for homebased. So we have to include Godwin Aguda, Victor Mbaoma, Abdulfatai (abi wat again is the name of the Shooting stars player that was making side passes all through his 5min youtube highlights the other day) and one of @jimmyball’s brothers from Benue b4 he will come here and accuse us of marginalization

             
        • JimmyBall 1 month ago

          @Dr.Drey… Junior Ajayi is an attacking midfielder for Al-Ahly of Egypt… He does not perform direct striking duties for them, yet he scores goals too. You think Al-Ahly is a mushroom club?

           
          • Dr. Drey 1 month ago

            Keep on telling yourself lies….keep making up excuses for flop. Its obvious you dont even watch Alhaly’s games. I watched all Alahly’s matches as from the Q/finals of the last CAF CL, there was NEVER a time Ajayi was deployed as attacking midfielder…..he’s either playing as a support striker behind Marwa Moshen or as a wing forward as he played in the final.
            The fact that Alahly is not a mushroom team is the reason why they wont start converting a striker to attacking midfielder…they have all the money in the world to sign a natural attacking midfielder.

            These are the record of his appearances

            Only God knows how you manage to conjure some of these your fallacies that have no basis.

            This is the team profile where he is conspicuously listed as a forward
            https://www.alahlyegypt.com/en/football/players/striker.

            Alhaly indeed is not a mushroom club….they are not a poor team that wouldnt afford a natural attacking midfielder beyond 1 transfer window (if at all they didn’t have)….to the extent of converting an out-and-out striker…..when its not like he his delivering double digits of assist in that position. It just doesnt make sense….its outright illogical.

            I’ve told you b4…..the club world cup starts this week we will see it all again and I wonder what excuses you will come up with afterwards

            At no point did he ever play as an attacking midfielder. How you conjure these your fallacies beats imagination. And that is why thing end up blowing up in your face with time.

      Moffi didn’t only score the winner, he got the assist (beautiful 1-2 exchange) for the equalizer.
      5goals in 5 games a first time in record of Lorient history books.
      Moffi indeed ua doing well’
      How far our better Doctors; Is moffi not better than anyone. _Lolz

    ….AFER ALL WAR DON’T LAST FOREVER; THIS BATTLE MUST SURELY HAVE AN END….

     
    • Greenturf 1 month ago

      Sadiq Umar,Osimhen and Onuachu should get the nod in our next international games.The trio are the best we have at the moment though Osimhen has been out for a while nursing a shoulder injury and later suffered a major illness,but his past performances as the most potent striker for the super eagles at the moment puts him in the list.
      However,the others mentioned on your list needs time and consistency to get a look in by the gaffer.

       
    • JimmyBall 1 month ago

      @UBFE… Keep adding Dessers who warms bench for Onuachu. Put Peter Olayinka the great hustler in his place. We don’t need bench warmers.

       
  • Larry 1 month ago

    Based on current form and level of performance in top leagues, it is obvious that Onuachu, Moffi, Awoniyi, Sadiq, Olayinka and Osi9 are the real deals for the top 9 and supporting forward position.

     
  • He played a delightful one two pass with the first goal scorer before running from about half field to score the winner. Impressive stuff from moffi. Keep it up

     
  • What about Simy? Everyone of you seems to have forget this guy
