Marshall Munetsi celebrates with his teammate after scoring for Stade de Reims on Sunday

Warriors midfielder, Marshall Munetsi marked his return from injury in style by scoring a brilliant goal to inspire French side, Stade de Reims, to a clinical 3-0 victory against Toulouse in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

The box-to-box midfielder, who was making a return from a hip injury that kept him out of action last week found the net in the seventh minute with a powerful shot from distance, to double the lead for the hosts.

Japanese international Junya Ito put Reims in front in the fourth minute.

Munetsi could have scored a brace in the match but his powerful shot in the 53rd minute cannoned off the crossbar before Moroccan Yunis Abdelhamid headed in a third from a corner in the 68th minute to complete the rout.

Munetsi’s goal was his fifth league goal of the season, the total league goals he scored last season.

The 26 year-old Zimbabwe international, whose form has reportedly caught the attention of several English Premier League clubs has now been directly involved in three goals in his last two outings.

Munetsi also scored and assisted against Troyes the last time out.

The Warriors star’s brilliant form is one of the major reasons why Reims are unbeaten in their last 17 Ligue 1 games, their longest run in their history, and the best ongoing run in the big-five European leagues.

With 37 points, Reims are number 10 on the log standings. Log leaders, Paris Saint Germain, have 60 points after 25 matches.
