Moses Simon Posts Successive MVP Performances, As FC Nantes Edge Lorient FC In 8 Goal Thriller

September, 23 2023.

Barely seven days after he scored the only goal in his sides's 1-0 win over Clermont Foot in the French top flight league, Super Eagles winger, Moses Simon posted another Man of the Match winning performance, by propelling FC Nantes to a comfortable 5-3 thrashing of L'Orient FC on Match-day 8, on Saturday Afternoon.

Nantes however needed to come from a goal down this time, as the visitors led 1-0 after just six minutes, thanks to a goal scored by Eli Kroupi Jr. but Moses Simon assisted the equalizer for Matthis Abline, in the 42nd minute, as the first half ended one goal apiece.

Eray Comert put the host in front within sixty seconds of the restart, before Mostafa Mohamed scored to establish a two-goal lead in the 54th minute.

Romain Favier then reduced the tally by making it 2-3 with just 15 minutes of time left.

The winger then provided another assist for Florent Mollet to make it 4-2 for Nantes, only for the visitors to again reduce the deficit, with a well worked goal two minutes later; reports.

But with the tie delicately poised on a knife's edge, Moses stepped up to convert a penalty awarded deep into added time (90+9 mins), and wrapped-up the eight goal thriller, which was as well the second three points won by Nantes in back-to-back French Ligue 1 games.
