Stage : Quand le capitaine Nabil Fekir offre le but de la victoire à son équipe
The captain milked the most out of his late game-winner during Thursday's intra-squad match in day 2 of OL's training camp in Spain.

Thursday's morning session in Spain saw the OL squad divided into four squads for a series of 5v5 matches on a reduced-sized pitch. Nothing out of the ordinary for Les Gones, until Nabil Fekir decided to lighten the mood with an over-the-top goal celebration after scoring in the final seconds to give his team the win. Set up perfectly inside the box by Bertrand Traore, Lyon's captain took full advantage and settled the match with a cool finish. And that's when the real show began: Fekir ripped off his practice jersey, did a dramatic knee-slide on the pitch and even imitated Memphis Depay's trademark celebration, covering both ears with his fingers.

The celebration? It was meant to tease them a little. I know it annoys them (laughs). It's a beautiful victory. We won everything today... We're working very well. Everyone is focused and applied. The sessions are a little hard but it's normal, it's the recovery stage. We know that we have to go through this physical work to be good. Everyone is in a good mood and works well.
