The Algerian international goalkeeper of FC Metz Alexandre Oukidja conceded, this Saturday, October 30, 2021, a goal that will remain in the annals of the French Championship. It was during the shock of his team against AS Saint-Étienne in a match counting for the 12th day of league 1.

The French press as well as all the observers and amateurs of the round ball in France, and more particularly the supporters of FC Metz, were quite often inflamed for the Algerian international goalkeeper Alexandre Oukidja. The good performances of the latter, the past season and even this year, did not leave indifferent.

It must be said that the Algerian goalkeeper has been decisive on many occasions with his team, and has been for a lot in the good results of FC Metz. This Saturday, October 30, Alexandre Oukidja was talked about, not for another good performance, but following an “exceptional” goal that he conceded during his team’s match against AS Saint- Étienne, as part of the 12th day of the championship.

We were indeed playing the 16th minute when the Tunisian player of AS Saint-Étienne, Wahbi Khazri inherited a ball in his team’s court, a little far from the central circle. He was some 68 meters from the goals of the Algerian goalkeeper. Seeing this advance, the Saint-Étienne striker tried his luck by initiating a shot that seemed innocuous, but which ended its course in the nets of the unfortunate Algerian goalkeeper.

This goal was also classified “the goal of the year” by the French press. It is in any case the most distant goal ever scored in the French championship during the past few years.

“I’m happy, I tried it a lot. I go up the ball, I have no solution, I see it advance, I try it and I have the success that it goes to the bottom ”, commented the author of this realization. Tunisian AS Saint Etienne striker Wahbi Khazri immediately responded to another Algerian, Farid Boulaya in this case, who opened the scoring for his team a few minutes earlier with a direct blow. The match ended with a score of parity (1-1).
