Super Eagles striker Terem Moffi says scoring against French giants Paris Saint-Germain remains one of the biggest moments of his career.

The Super Eagles striker found the back of the net for his FC Lorient in a league game against Paris St-Germain last January 2021.

The goal guided the tiny Club to a famous 3-2 victory, and the game went down as one of the biggest achievements in the Club’s history.

“It’s like when the universe simply aligns because PSG are undoubtedly the biggest side in France and no one gave us a chance,” he told BBC Africa.

“I also came face to face with players I admire, respect, and love to watch on television. To play and score against PSG with Neymar, [Kylian] Mbappe, and the other top players were unbelievable.”

The 22-year-old, went on to describe the goal as the best of his career.

“It remains the biggest goal of my career and it coming that late in the game sealed a lot of things in my life. I still can’t believe it but with time it gets real,” he concluded.

Terem scored 14 goals in his debut campaign in France and subsequently got an invitation to the Super Eagles squad.
