Manchester City loanee Samir Nasri has scored his first goal for his new club, Sevilla, in Saturday's La Liga match against Athletic Bilbao. And it was a very good looking goal from the talented Frenchman:
Sevilla manager Jorge Sampaoli is known from asking his players to play great football, with short passes and plenty of movement. This is exactly what happened on this play: four different players (Mariano, Nasri, Iborra, Nasri again and Sarabia) touched the ball to create a beautiful play, and after the cross was deflected by the Bilbao keeper, it was Nasri who appeared wide open inside the box and finished the play with a very nice shot to equalize.
Facing Bilbao at the San Mamés Stadium is one of the toughest fixtures in the Spanish league, and Nasri has come up big for his team. Remember that Pep Guardiola wanted him to stay at City and Samir himself asked to leave for a year to play more minutes elsewhere, but if he continues to score goals like this he will play more minutes at City next season. This is world-class stuff.
Well done, Samir!
