After 7,000km trip, Golden Lion are mauled 12-0 in French Cup

January 07, 2024

Having travelled nearly 7,000km from the Caribbean island of Martinique, Golden Lion got a 12-0 mauling from Ligue 1 big guns Lille in the French Cup on Saturday. Golden Lion operate in a regional league in the French league's sixth tier, while six-time French Cup winners Lille sit fourth in the top flight but Lille coach Paulo Fonseca still fielded his strongest line-up. Lille quickly ran riot with both Edon Zhegrova and Jonathan David bagging hat-tricks and Yusuf Yazici and Hakon Haraldsson scoring braces. Tiago Santos and Amine Messoussa also added to the scoreline. The Island outfit had Martinique national 'keeper Gilles Meslien in goal but the 34-year-old will escape any blame as the five-time Martinique champions also failed to register a shot on his opposite number Lille stopper Lucas Chevalier's goal.
