Nigeria’s Super Eagles forward, Terem Moffi, shone brightly in Nice’s 1-0 victory over Sherif in the first leg tie of their Europa Conference League on Thursday. The Nigerian international, who was making his second appearance in the competition, was a constant threat each time he attacked. Unfortunately, Moffi could not get his name on the score sheet as his long range effort missed the target. However, the win means Nice take a one goal advantage to France, where they will be hoping to wrap up the game.
Moffi has been in impressive form this season, scoring five goals in 20 appearances for Nice. He has been a key part of Nice’s impressive run this season, which sees them currently sitting in third place in the Ligue 1. With the Super Eagles set to compete at the 2022 African Cup of Nations, Moffi’s form could be vital to Nigeria’s hopes of success at the tournament.
Moffi’s impressive performances have also attracted interest from some of Europe’s top clubs. It remains to be seen if the Super Eagles forward will make a move in the summer transfer window, but it would certainly be a huge boost for Nigeria’s chances in the coming months.
Overall, Terem Moffi’s impressive display in Nice’s 1-0 victory over Sherif is a reminder of the quality he possesses. With the 2022 African Cup of Nations fast approaching, Moffi will be hoping to carry his fine form into the tournament and help Nigeria reach their goal of winning the continental title.
