The 2022-2023 league season kicked off last weekend with a few Nigerian stars impressing for their different clubs. Super Eagles winger Moses Simon has been recognized as one of the best players of the opening round of the 2022/2023 Ligue 1 Uber Eats season. Moses Simon played every minute as Nantes ground out a drab goalless draw at Angers on matchday one. And despite the Canaries’ poor attacking performance, Simon still distinguished himself as one of the best Nantes stars on the pitch of the Stade Raymond-Kopa.
Against Angers, therefore, Moses Simon could have had six assists. Unfortunately, Nantes were not clinical enough and were held to a 0-0 draw. Messi and Neymar’s contributions, however, guided PSG to a fine 4-0 away win.
Who are the best ten?
– Moses Simon and Neymar Jr. (6)
– Teji Savanier, Remy Cabella, and Przemysław Frankowski (5)
– Lionel Messi, Nuno Tavares, Azzedine Ouhani and Andreas Bruus (4)
– Branco van den Boomen (3)
Other stats confirmed Moses Simon’s outstanding display at Angers. During the encounter, the former Levante ace succeeded in 63% of his passes (10 out of 16) and won 67% of his direct duels (4 out of 6). Simon will hope his teammates will raise their game when Nantes lock horns with Lille this weekend at the Stade de la Beaujoire in their first home match of the campaign.
