VIDEO: New Portsmouth striker Frederic Piquionne’s brace against Rangers

With the dark clouds seemingly permanently positioned above Fratton Park, we hope to bring a rare ray of sunshine to the South Coasters by bringing you footage of new signing Frederic Piquionne’s brace scored on the Frenchman’s debut last weekend against Rangers.

Piquionne, having signed on a year-long loan from Lyon had only trained with his new team-mates for a couple of days prior to the pre-season friendly, but the striker appeared to settled in immediately scoring a goal in each half to provide Pompey with a much-needed success.

Piquionne opened with a looping header from a right wing cross, before expertly taking-on and rounding Gers keeper Allan McGregor after being sent clean through on a one-on-one in the second half.
