Terem Moffi, a Super Eagles striker, was at his best in Nice’s 3-0 Ligue 1 victory over Monaco on Sunday.
The Nigerian international, who was making his fourth appearance, has two goals this season.
Moffi’s brilliant finish in the eighth minute silenced the home fans.
To the delight of Nice’s technical staff, he grabbed his brace in the 26th minute. He later played a key role in the third goal, assisting Kephren Thuram-Ulien in the 43rd minute.
Nice now sits seventh in the league table with 41 points, while Monaco is third with 50 points.
