The Nigeria international didn't score, but that didn’t stop the Canaries from clinching victory

Nantes saw off Reims 1-0 at Stade de la Beaujoire in French Ligue 1 action on Sunday.

The Nigerian wideman – on loan from Spanish La Liga club, Levante, was on the pitch for 89 minutes and was then replaced by Samuel Moutoussamy.

Simon completed three successful dribbles, only one player managed more in the match. He also enjoyed a 100% shot accuracy and created one goalscoring opportunity. He will need to improve his crosses since all five attempts were unsuccessful.

Kalifa Coulibaly scored the only goal of the game in the 69th minute, and the result leaves Christian Gourcuff’s men third on the Ligue 1 table with 10 points, just two points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain, after five games.

Simon has now played three times for Les Canaris, scoring once against Amiens, and providing the assist in the 1-0 win over Montpelier before the international break.

The 24-year old was part of the Nigeria squad that drew 2-2 with Ukraine at the Dnipro Arena last Tuesday, coming on for Samuel Kalu in the 73rd minute.
