Whilst Florian Thauvin’s little time at Newcastle didn’t exactly work out for any party involved, his loan spell at Marseille this season has seen him look reinvigorated. His form has been a key reason why Marseille has stayed within touching distance of the Champions League spots this season.
His good form continued this game week against Lille as he starred in a 2-0 win last night. Always seen as a top-level talent, the Frenchman is going some way towards fulfilling his potential this season. And the goal he scored yesterday, to seal the win, would be a good proof of that.
Collecting the ball just inside the right side of the penalty area, he cut back onto his favoured left foot and made some space before unleashing a curling shot that went straight into the far top corner.
See the video of his amazing goal below:
