Moses Simon Stars As Nantes Pick Up First Point of the Season Against Lille

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Nigerian winger Moses Simon dazzled to help his side draw with Lille in the first game of game week two in the French Ligue 1.

Simon converted an effort from close range in the 28th minute via a deflected corner before Ismaily came off the bench to rescue a point for Lille.

Simon's goal was Nantes' first goal of the season after their opening game last weekend against Angers ended in a barren draw.

Nantes started the better of the two sides before Lille's Jonathan Bamba took over with some mazy runs. Simon hit the foot of the post with some wicked effort before finally finding the back of the net two minutes later.

After the break, Lille resumed the game with intent but were kept at bay by Nantes goalkeeper Alban Lafont who made two wonderful saves from Remy Cabella. Lille then struck the crossbar via a Benjamin Andre.
