VIDEO: Nigeria’s Terem Moffi breaks PSG’s heart, Lorient record with late goal


Nigeria international, Terem Moffi, stole the headlines in the French Ligue 1 by scoring a late minute goal to hand French champions, Paris Saint Germain a 3-2 defeat against Lorient.

PSG were cruising on the wings of two Neymar penalties( 45′, 58′) after Laurent Abergel gave the home side a 36th-minute lead but had their hopes cramped when Yoane Wissa equalised with ten minutes to go.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men almost went away with a draw at the Stade Yves Allainmat – Le Moustoir Stadium before Moffi’s last-gasp strike (90+1′) sealed the win after Wissa had drawn the hosts level following Neymar’s second penalty of the match.

Moffi’s goal handed Pochecttino his first PSG defeat as well as Lorient’s first Ligue 1 win against Paris since August 2011 (0-1).

The 21-year-old forward’s goal was his fifth in his last five matches, including against Nice, Monaco, Bordeaux and Dijon becoming the first Lorient player to score in five consecutive Ligue 1 matches.

Thanks to Moffi’s goal, Lorient won two Ligue 1 games in a row (3-2 v Dijon on January 27 and 3-2 v Paris on January 31) for the first time since March-April 2017 (3).

PSG missed out on the chance to go top of Ligue 1 as Lille moved top of the summit with a 1-0 home victory against Dijon on Sunday.
