The Nigeria international was unstoppable at the weekend as he led his side to a memorable win in Paris
OGC Nice forward Terem Moffi had been named in the French Ligue 1 Team of the Week following his outstanding display at the weekend.
Moffi was a one-man destruction army as he almost single-handedly propelled OGC Nice to a stunning victory over Paris Saint Germain.
The Super Eagles striker netted two goals and provided a fine assist as Nice forced a 2-3 defeat down the throat of their hosts.
Following his exceptional showing, Moffi is preferred in the sole striker role in the Sofascore Best XI of the matchday five.

Both of PSG’s goals came off the boot of French superstar Kylian Mbappe and the former Monaco ace takes up the left-wing role of the assigned 3-2-4-1 formation.
Moffi is, however, edged to the Player of the Week honours by Algeria and Metz goalkeeper Alexandre Oukidja.
While Moffi was given a second-highest rating of 9.0, Oukidja earned a perfect 10 out of 10 rating.
Oukidja made an astonishing ten saves, six of which were from inside the box, to help Metz keep a clean sheet in their impressive 1-0 away win at Lens.
After his exploits in Paris, Moffi now has three goals and two assists in his first five appearances in Ligue 1 this term.
Overall, the former Lorient forward now has 43 Ligue 1 goals in 108 games over the course of his four seasons in France.
Only two Nigerians in history have more goals in the French top flight than Moffi – Victor Ikpeba with 55 goals and John Utaka with 59.
