Super Eagles forward scores first goal for Girondis Bordeaux

Super Eagles forward Samuel Kalu scored his first goal for Girondis Bordeaux in their 3-3 draw against Nimes in a French Ligue 1 encounter played on Sunday, September 16.

Kalu who was a newcomer to the national team picked up from his impressive performances for the Super Eagles in their 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Seychelles and the international friendly against Liberia. Since his move to Girondis Bordeaux from KAA Gent in the summer transfer window, Kalu has been unable to find the back of the net but has shown glimpses of brilliance especially after their 2-1 win over title contenders AS Monaco before the international break.
