Super Eagles stars suffer contrasting fortunes in Ligue 1

Soccernet.ng brings you the highlights as three Nigerian footballers were involved in a win, a draw, and a loss in a trio of French top-flight matches played on Sunday

Nigerian international Moses Simon was on the pitch for 81 minutes as two second-half goals powered Nantes to a 2-0 win over Troyes in a Ligue 1 clash at the Stade de la Beaujoire.

Simon claimed the club’s Player of the Month on Thursday for the second straight month after a string of excellent performances.

The 26-year-old was not among the goals on Sunday afternoon, as Andrei Girotto’s fine finish and Ludovic Blas’ penalty gave the Canaries their fourth win of the campaign.

In another Ligue 1 encounter, Super Eagles playmaker, Samuel Kalu was named in Bordeaux’s starting eleven but he could not help Les Girondins avoid a 3-0 defeat at Monaco.

Tchouameni struck first for the home side ten minutes before the break, and the victory was sealed after the interval with efforts from Golovin and Yedder.

At the Moustir, Terem Moffi was on from the start as Lille fought back to force newly-promoted Clermont Foot to a 1-1 draw
