Teen sensation Kamaldeen Sulemana has been named in the L’équipe Team-Of-The-Week of the French Ligue 1 matchday nine following a commanding display against PSG.
The former FC Nordsjaelland man dazzled in the French Ligue 1 on Sunday afternoon for Stade de Rennais against Star-studded PSG side.
The Ghanaian international forward grabbed an assist in his team’s victory over the big spenders at home as they ended PSG’s unbeaten run this season.
Sulemana was the life wire for the Red and Blacks throughout the first half with dazzling runs and incisive passes but his shots from outside the box went over the cross bar.
Just before the break, the former FC Nordsjaelland marksman sent in a delicious cross from the left side of attack to locate Gaëtan Laborde who tapped home the game’s opening goal at the stroke of half time.
Flavien Tait made it 2-0 to the hosts seconds after the break before Kylian Mpabbe’s goal was rightfully ruled out by VAR.
Sulemana gave PSG defense a torrid time and was a constant threat to Moroccan right Achraf Hakimi through the entirety of the match.
He came close again to scoring in the second half but his right-footed effort went over the bar.
Sulemana saw 90 minutes of football as he helped his team to secure a vital home win over Messi, Neymar, Mbappé and colleagues before the international break.
The 19-year-old Ghanaian versatile forward has three goals and one assist in eight matches this season in the French elite league.
