The Nigerian international got on the end of Valentin Rongier ball to fire a first-time shot past Amiens goalkeeper Régis Gurtner and secure the three points for his side.

He could have had a second through a header but was denied by the frame of the goal. Nevertheless, it was a brilliant debut for the former Genk winger as Nantes got their first win under Christian Gourcuff.
