The great effectiveness of Quentin Minel

Tiago Rocha scored the first goal of the match. But it is not how it starts, but how it finishes. Quentin Minel, with eight goals in eight shots (100%), and goalkeeper Teodor Paul (14 saves) were the basis of Nimes's second triumph. Frankis Carol of Sporting was also noteworthy with ten goals.

We couldn’t react to the attack of USAM Nîmes Gard and they studied our defense very well. We tried, but we cannot and the goalkepper defended everything. We meet again on the next week, in France, and we want to win.
