UEFA Votes Terem Moffi’s Goal Best Goal In Europa Conference League




The UEFA Technical Observer Panel has voted Nigeria football star, Terem Moffi’s goal against Basel the best goal of the 2022-2023 UEFA Europa Conference League.

Terem Moffi’s spectacular goal was part of OGC Nice’s dramatic 2-2 draw with Basel on April 13, 2023. Unfortunately for the Nigeria international, Basel knocked out the French team in the second leg with a 2-1 win on April 20.

Even though OGC Nice ended their journey in the Europa Conference League in the quarter-final round, Moffi’s two-month-old goal was deemed the best in the tournament in the 2022-2023 season.
