Ghanaian duo Osman Bukari, winger and Dennis Appiah, defender played a pivotal role in Nantes 3-1 triumph against Paris Saint-Germain in the Franch Ligue 1 crunch encounter last night.
Osman Bukari marked the day with an assist to help his side get the second goal courtesy of Quentin Merlin at the 16th minute after Randal Kolo Muani punished Messi’s side early in the first half with his 4th minute strike.
Ludovic Blas from France also cemented the 3 goal lead during the additional 6 minutes of the first half.
PSG lost in the French league for just the second time this season as Nantes profited from a superb opening 45 minutes to upset the leaders.
Pochettino’s side – unbeaten in Ligue 1 since October – fell behind to a smart display of the Canaries.
Neymar struck just after the recess but had a tame penalty saved on the hour by goalkeeper Alban.
Lionel Messi, making an 800th club appearance of his career fed Neymar in the build-up to PSG’s goal two minutes after the interval – and it looked like they would build momentum when Dennis Appiah brought down Mbappe in the box.
Nantes jump from 10th to fifth in Ligue 1, while Marseille can cut the gap to PSG at the top to 10 points if they beat Clermont at home on Sunday.
