The French Ligue 1 resumed after two weeks of international break, and one of Nigeria’s stars in the league has been rewarded for his performance
Super Eagles star Terem Moffi has been named in L’Equipe’s Ligue 1 team of the week for matchday five. The 21-year-old delivered a man of the match display as Lorient stunned champions Lille at the Stade du Moustoir on Friday night.
Moffi held off four defenders to set up Lorient’s first goal before scoring an 87th-minute winner to help Les Merlus to their second win of the season.
His performance has now earned him a spot in the team of the week. In a 4-4-2 team dominated by Paris Saint Germain stars, the Super Eagles star partnered Senegal and Marseille star Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba Dieng in attack.

Moffi has been a revelation since he moved to the French top-flight from Kortjrik last October. The 21-year-old scored 14 goals for Lorient last season, and he is well on course to replicate that number this season, having scored two goals in five league games already.
