Ernest Nuamah rescues Lyon with late goal against Stade de Reims

Ghanaian sensation Ernest Nuamah emerged as the hero for Olympique Lyon, salvaging a crucial point with a late equalizer against Stade de Reims.

Nuamah’s impactful contribution off the bench turned the tide for Lyon, ensuring they avoided a second consecutive home defeat.

The 20-year-old winger showcased his prowess by swiftly responding to Joseph Okumi’s earlier goal for Stade de Reims.

Nuamah’s defining moment came in the 65th minute when he met Said Benrahma’s perfectly placed pass with a commanding header, leaving Stade de Reims’ goalkeeper Yehvann Diouf helpless as the ball found the back of the net.

This timely equaliser not only rescued Lyon from the brink of defeat but also maintained their 10th position in the fiercely contested Ligue 1 standings.

With 35 points accumulated from 27 games, Lyon remains in contention for higher placement as the season progresses.

For Nuamah, the goal marked a vital moment in his Lyon career, being his second strike since joining the club in the summer.

Having showcased his talent on the international stage with the Black Stars in recent friendlies against Nigeria and Uganda, Nuamah’s impact continued to reverberate both domestically and internationally.

As Lyon looks forward, they aim to capitalise on this positive momentum in their upcoming fixture against Nantes, with aspirations of ascending further up the league table in the remaining matches of the season.

With Nuamah’s heroics leading the charge, Lyon’s quest for success in the Ligue 1 promises to be an exhilarating journey ahead.
