Super Eagles winger, Moses Simon scored from the spot as Nantes end their winless run after seven games in style.
Simon scored the equalizer in what will eventually be a 4-1 whitewash of Brest in the Ligue 1.
Nantes have endured a turbulent start to the season, losing scandalously at the UEFA Europa League and now sit 14th in the Ligue 1.
Fadiga put Brest ahead in the 18th minute but Moses Simon kept his calm and scored from the spot to equalize in the 35th minute.
Nantes will go on to build courage from there and earn a comfortable 4-1 victory with goals from Ignatius Ganago, scoring 46 seconds after Simon’s equalizer and second half goals from Mostafa Mohammed and Moussa Sissoko.
