At the Stade de la Beaujoire Stadium, Moses Simon defeated the odds by ending the goal drought Nantes has had which had gone long enough for 7 matches with a 4-1 win over Brest.
Brest were the first to conceed a goal at the 18th minute which left many to believe they (Nantes) were going to continue thiers loosing streak which was more evident as Nantes was given a penalty but lost it.
Another penalty was given to Nantes and Simon helped shoot it into the net, more goals were followed by the team with Ganago, Mohamed, and Sissoko scoring making it a total of 4 goals.
Simon and Mohamed had previously had arguments about who would take the second penalty which thier manager Antoine Kombouare saw and warned both players which he also told the post-game press conference:
“I think he (Mohamed) wanted to take the penalty. We will have the occasion to talk about it; it took him out of the game for a while though he had a good start. We felt he was disappointed but we had to keep him in the game.”
“This shouldn’t happen again because we can suffer and even lose a game. This kind of attitude is never good, especially in our situation. You must show support and confidence to your teammates. What is more important now is that it didn’t have any grave consequences on the rest of the game.”
Nantes’s victory places them on the 14th position and ahead of Brest in the table with 10 points.
