Ghana forward Majeed Waris is satisfied with Strasbourg’s draw with French giants Olympique Lyon in Ligue 1 on Sunday.
The on-loan Porto star provided the assist for Kevin Lucien’s equalizer after Lyon had taken the lead 21 minutes earlier.
“A point away from home not bad at all. Thanks to everyone for their support. Let’s keep fighting together. Allez Racing.Happy to give that important assist as well,’ he posted on social media after the game.
Waris appeared to have sparked Strasbourg since joining the club on loan from Portuguese giants FC Porto in the winter transfer window.
The Ghana international has helped Le Racing collect three wins, two losses and two draws since marking his debut in the 3-1 victory over AS Monaco on January 25.
He has tallied two goals during that fantastic period for the club.
The 27-year-old marked another distinctive outing for the side when they played as guests to Olympique Lyon at the Parc Olympique Lyonnaise.
Lyon fetched the opening goal in the 21st minute through Burkinabe international Bertrand Traore.
But Strasbourg fought back to gain a point from the match in the 42nd minute after Waris laid on a killer pass to Kevin Zohi to finish off a magnificent move.
Waris was replaced with South African star Lebo Mothiba in the 82nd minute of the match.
