Jeremy Sebas scored his first goal to earn Strasbourg a 1-1 draw with Marseille in the French league, continuing the club’s recent good run under coach Patrick Vieira.
The 20-year-old winger, born in Martinique, saved a point for the visitors with a right-footed shot in second-half stoppage time.
It was his first goal for the club in just his fourth appearance and his hard work was praised by Vieira, the former France and Arsenal captain.
“Jeremy Sebas has exceptional qualities,” said Vieira.
“He has a great desire to play for the team.
“I’m very happy for him tonight. To score his first goal at the Velodrome is hard to beat!”
Strasbourg showed remarkable resilience after falling behind shortly after kick-off on Friday.
Samuel Gigot gave Marseille the lead after two minutes when he latched on to Vitinho’s neat pass and headed past the stranded keeper.
However, the visitors fought until the end and the draw leaves them in ninth place with 24 points from 18 games.
Marseille are unbeaten at home this season and are fifth with 28 points, 12 behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain.
