Moses Simon on Fire, Nigerian forward destroys PSG in Ligue 1 clash
Moses Simon netted a fine goal to help Nantes daze Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 on Sunday at the Parc des Princes.
After scoring against Reims in his last game for Antoine Kombouare’s men, the Super Eagles winger was given his 19th league start of the season against the men from the capital.
Simon showed the world what he is capable of, dishing out a five-star performance in the clash to help the Canaries return to winning ways after a three-game winless run and keep hope alive in their relegation fight.
PSG bossed the first half, and Julian Draxler opened the scoring in the 42nd minute.
Nantes came to life in the second half and equalized in the 59th minute when Randal Kolo Muani fired home his effort.
Simon then scored what proved to be the winning goal in the 71st minute when he calmly tapped home the ball after a through pass from Muani.
