The Nigerian international was at his brilliant best as Les Canaries came back from a goal down to beat the champions at Parc Des Princes
Moses Simon scored the winner as Nantes stunned Paris Saint Germain in their Ligue 1 encounter at Parc Des Princes on Sunday night. The former Levante now has five league goals in 24 matches, including two in the last ten days.
For PSG, they missed the chance to go top after Lille played a goalless draw at Monaco. The Champions started on the front foot, though, and they got their reward in the 42nd minute courtesy of a strike from Julian Draxler.
However, Randal Kolo Muani restored parity for Nantes just a minute before the hour mark. The goal gave Les Canaries life, and they took the lead in the 71st minute through Simon, who tapped home from a Muani square play.
Moses Simon was the match hero as his goal handed crucial three points to Nantes FC at Paris Saint Germain on Sunday night. They are still in the relegation zone but the win is a morale boosting.
