Video: Memphis Depay scores his first goal for Lyon

by Sam Peoples

Memphis Depay scored his first goal for Lyon tonight in their 4-0 win over Nancy at home.

Having come on in the 58th minute with the score at 3-0, Memphis was put clean through on goal with a clever through-ball and slotted home a very accomplished finish underneath the onrushing goalkeeper.

Here’s a video of Memphis’ goal:

I’m not sure I ever saw Memphis pull off a finish like that at Man United, nor was he hardly ever put into a position like that either. At United, Memphis seemed to lash his shots in – this finish was very composed. Fair play to him.

The French League allowed Mario Balotelli to breath new life into his career, will it do the same for Memphis?
