Super Eagles winger, Samuel Kalu equaled his best tally for goals scored in a single Ligue 1 season on Friday night when he equalised for Bordeaux in their 2-1 loss away at Olympique Lyon, AOIFootball.com reports.
Unbeaten in 2021, the visitors made a trip to Lyon hoping to extend their run to 5 games with Kalu getting a starter’s berth whilst compatriot Josh Maja was only good for the reserve bench.
Cameroon forward Karl Toko Ekambi was the difference in the first half when he struck just after the half-hour mark to give the hosts a 1-0 lead, as they went into the break with the advantage.
Kalu then equalized for his team ten minutes after the break when he thundered home from his left foot before Leo Dubois’s last-minute goal broke the hearts of the visitors who lost for the first time this year.
Kalu, who featured for 76 minutes before being replaced, had a game rating of 6.7, won 7 duels, and also completed 61% of his passes.
