Super Eagles striker Terem Moffi is not just a proper gunman but also a fast man after stats revealed he is the second-fastest man in the French Ligue 1 this season, Abbeylivenetwork.com reports.
Lorient striker Terem Moffi is ranked the second fastest player in Ligue 1 while Nantes winger Moses Simon is in eighth place.
It is not surprising that Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappé holds the distinction of being the fastest player in the Ligue 1 after eight matches, outpacing Moffi to claim the speedstar tag.
The 2018 World Cup winner clocked a top speed of 36 km / h while Moffi also proved that he is a formidable sprinter by reaching a maximum speed of 35.64 km/h.
Three players complete the podium namely Elye Wahi (MHSC), Jonathan Clauss (OM) and Jonathan David (LOSC) who share third place after clocking up to 35.28 km/h.
With a top speed of 34.56 km/h, Super Eagles captain against Algeria on Tuesday, Simon is joint-eight along with Cengiz Under (OM) and Achraf Hakimi (PSG).
Having scored 14 goals in his debut season in Ligue 1, Moffi only managed eight league goals for Lorient last season. However, he is on course to eclipse that number anytime soon, having scored six goals this season.
Moffi has carried his club form onto the international level after scoring for Nigeria in the 2-1 loss to Algeria on Tuesday night. Moffi will hope to continue his scoring streak when Lorient return to Ligue 1 action this weekend.
