Super Eagles forward, Josh Maja became the first Eagle to score in the French Ligue 1 this campaign when he opened scoring for Bordeaux who defeated Angers 2-0 away from home to record their first win of the campaign, AOIFootball.com reports.

Henry Onyekuru: The speedy winger started for the second straight week to help Monaco record their first win of the campaign following a 1-0 win away at Metz.

A first-half strike from Benoît Badiashile was all the visitors needed as they fought hard with 10 man to seal their first win of the campaign.

Onyekuru was withdrawn after an hour in the match, with the Nigerian still impressing earning a game rating of 6.7, completing 67% of his passes whilst also making one key pass in the process.

Moses Simon: The Super Eagles winger saw 90 minutes of action as hosts FC Nantes made a perfect home start to the campaign following a 2-1 win over visitors Nimes Olympique.

The 25-year-old started from the flanks with first-half strikes from Andrei Girotto and Imran Louza giving them a 2-0 lead going into the half time break.

Imran Louza then saw red three minutes after the restart with the visitors making the most of their numerical advantage as they pulled one back just before the hour mark.

Moses and his teammates however held on to seal all three points despite been reduced to 9 men when Fabio received his second yellow card three minutes from time.

The former Levante winger finished with a rating of 6.5, completing 70% of his passes, making 1 key pass whilst also winning 3 of his duels contested.

Josh Maja and Samuel Kalu: Former Sunderland Josh Maja scored his first goal of the campaign to lead visitors Bordeaux to a 2-0 win over Angers with compatriot Samuel Kalu once again coming from the bench.

Maja put his side ahead after 25 minute when he reacted to a quickest at the near post to fire home for 1-0 before Toma Basic doubled their lead two minutes later to make it 2-0.

Kalu was then introduced with 12 minute left on the clock as he replaced Ui Jo Hwang with Bordeaux holding up to seal a comfortable 2-0 win and move up to second on the log standings after two rounds of matches.
