Ghanaian midfielder Salis Abdul Samed can finally exhale with relief as RC Lens secured their first victory in Ligue 1 this season.
Last season’s Ligue 1 runners-up had encountered a challenging start to the new campaign, recording four losses and six draws in their league matches.
However, following their draw in the UEFA Champions League opener against Sevilla in Spain, the Red and Yellow squad discovered their winning form, overcoming a one-goal deficit to defeat Toulouse on Sunday.
Abdul Samed expressed his satisfaction on social media, stating, “Successful service. We are happy to offer you this first victory.”
In a thrilling clash at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis, Ceasar Gelabert opened the scoring for the visiting team in the 33rd minute.
Wesley Said found the net just before halftime to level the scores, and Morgan Guilavogu netted the winner with only six minutes remaining.
