Though his team failed to back home maximum points in their Match-Day 25 outing in the French Ligue 1 Championship, Indomitable Lions of Cameroon forward Karl Toko Ekambi, on the books of Olympique Lyonnais and wishlist of Premier League spenders Newcastle United FC was instrumental again for his side on Saturday.
Having conceded as early as in the third minute through N Clauss, Toko rise up to the occasion again for his club when he provided an assist for Zimbabwe’s Tino Kadawere to level matters, just a minute before the break.
The reliable Cameroon forward returned for the second segment looking even more dangerous going by his movements especially in the opposition penalty area. Fortunately the Lens backline had enough to prevent the Cameroonian from aggravating the damage he had initiated earlier on.
Ekambi has scored six goals in 19 appearances in French Ligue 1 championship. In all competitions, he has scored 11 goals in 25 appearances, helping Lyon to the sixth spot in the French Ligue 1 after 25 games played so far.
The Les Gones are targeting at least a top three finish in the domestic Championship and face defending Champions Lille next weekend.
It could be Ekambi’s final season at the Groupama Stadium as interest from elsewhere especially Newcastle United continue to grow.
