Eagles Tracker: Moses Simon stars in Nantes' 1-1 draw against Lille

Nigeria's Moses Simon on Friday night opened his goal account in the 2022/2023 French Ligue1 season, during Nantes' stalemate with former champions Lille.

The menacing Super Eagles winger broke the deadlock in the twenty-fifth minute having came close to scoring the game's opener earlier.

Off a flick from Andrei Girotto, the 27-year old Nigerian star fired past goaljeeper Leo Jardim and gifted The Canaries a deserving lead - it was Nantes' first goal this season.

Lille, meanwhile, kept it late in the game to net an equalizer. Substitute, Ismaily clinically equaliser in the seventy-minute following a defence-splitting one-two with Jonathan David.

And despite an enterprising football from the two combatants, they had to share the spoils, thus leaving Simon's Nantes in a continued search for a win this season.

Nantes will travel to Marseille next weekend hoping to secure their first league win.
