Super Eagles striker Terem Moffi has been recognized for his remarkable performances in the Ligue 1 Uber Eats by securing a spot in the prestigious African Best XI of the Season. The Nigerian striker’s inclusion in the team confirms his status as one of the best players in the league.
Moffi’s 18-goal haul sets a new landmark in French football, surpassing Victor Ikpeba’s impressive 16 goals achieved in the late nineties for Monaco. The 24-year-old’s goal-scoring prowess has not gone unnoticed, and he joins an illustrious group of players in this star-studded lineup.
The Ligue 1’s African team of the season has representatives from seven nations gracing a 4-3-3 formation. Among these gifted individuals, Terem Moffi’s name stands tall, proudly representing Nigeria. He was placed on the right side of a formidable attacking trio, alongside Mali’s Mama Balde and Strasbourg’s goal machine Habib Diallo.
Throughout the season, the vibrant forward showcased his undeniable talent, netting 18 goals and adding three assists in 34 Ligue 1 appearances. Starting his campaign with FC Lorient, where he notched 12 goals, Moffi’s brilliance caught the attention of OGC Nice, who secured his services on loan in January.
Unfazed by the mid-season switch, he seamlessly adapted and continued his goal-scoring spree, adding another six strikes to his tally for Nice. With such exceptional contributions, it is no surprise that Ligue 1 has bestowed this remarkable honor upon Moffi.
However, despite his accolades, there is a hint of disappointment. Moffi’s inclusion in the Ligue 1 African Best XI was not mirrored in his national team selection. Nigeria’s head coach Jose Peseiro did not include the former Kortrijk ace in the 23-man squad set to face Sierra Leone later this month.
In conclusion, Terem Moffi’s impressive performances in the Ligue 1 Uber Eats have earned him a spot in the African Best XI of the Season. His goal-scoring prowess sets him apart as one of the best strikers in the league. While he may not have been included in Nigeria’s national team squad, Moffi’s remarkable achievements in the French league cannot be ignored. Fans and football enthusiasts can look forward to seeing more of Moffi’s skills in the upcoming seasons.
