Once seen as the next Eden Hazard by Ligue 1 followers, it’s safe to say Florian Thauvin hasn’t quite managed to hit those heights just yet. Currently on loan at Marseille from Newcastle United, the winger seems to enjoying his time in France
Marseille took on Nancy in a Ligue 1 fixture this weekend which they ended up winning comfortably, thanks in no small part to Thauvin. He scored his fourth goal of the season and also notched up an assist, putting in the kind of performance many know he is capable of.
However, it was his goal that most viewers would remember. Receiving the ball out wide, the winger cut onto his left foot and rifled the ball into the far corner.
Very reminiscent of Arjen Robben, see the footage of Thauvin’s screamer here:
