Moses Simon’s first Ligue 1 goal of the season was quite a fine strike, as he left fans of the home team in shock and the away fans buzzing.
The Nigeria international produced a second-half long-range screamer to make sure Nantes sealed a 1-0 victory over their hosts at Stade Gabriel Montpied.
The 28-year-old forward finally got his boot firing after 10 months without a goal.

He got one for the Canaries against Clermont in a stunning fashion, and it proved crucial as his goal sealed all three points for Nantes.
After a goalless first half, a silly error from the Clermont Foot defenders barely 3 minutes into the second half gave the Nigerian star room to try out a long-range flick, and it worked like magic.
The home team got a golden opportunity to redeem themselves after being awarded a penalty in stoppage time, but unfortunately, Muhammed Cham disappointed the home fans with a bad finish as his left footed shot was just a bit too high.
Nantes next game is a home clash against Lorient on Saturday, and the Super Eagles star man will surely be hoping to build on this momentum as the win gives Nantes a huge relief from the relegation zone.
