Samuel Kalu Stars As Bordeaux Maintains Winning Run
The Nigerian playmaker has been instrumental to Les Girondin’s success in the new year, and it continued on Sunday afternoon with a home win over Angers
Samuel Kalu delivered an assured performance to help Girondins Bordeaux secure a fine 2-1 win over Angers in a Ligue 1 clash at the Stade Matmut-Atlantique.
Korea Republic forward Hwang Ui-jo got both of Bordeaux’s goals in the opening eleven minutes of the encounter. But Fulgini’s strike, five minutes before the break, reduced the visitors’ deficit.
Kalu, though, was one of the home side’s better performers before he was replaced just past the hour mark.
