Moses Simon’s first Ligue 1 goal for the season was an absolute beauty that can easily claim goal of the season and even more.

The Nigerian international unleashed a sensational long-range screamer in the second half, ensuring Nantes clinched a 1-0 triumph at Stade Gabriel Montpied.

The 28-year-old forward reignited his scoring prowess after a ten-month dry spell. He did so in style, with a stunning goal against Clermont that ultimately secured all three points for Nantes.

Following a goalless first half, a defensive lapse from Clermont Foot merely three minutes into the second period provided the Super Eagles star with the space to attempt a long-range flick, which worked like magic.

The home team had a golden opportunity to redeem themselves after being awarded a late penalty, but unfortunately, Muhammed Cham disappointed the home faithful with an errant left-footed shot that sailed just a tad too high.

Moses Simon was rightfully named the Man of the Match, with his lone goal sealing a 1-0 victory for Nantes over Clermont Foot.

Nantes’ next fixture is a home showdown against Lorient on Saturday.

With this win, the Super Eagles’ player will undoubtedly aim to capitalize on the momentum, as it provides Nantes with much-needed relief moving ahead
