Mohamed Remy Gomis is an up-and-coming striker from ASC La Linguère, based in Saint-Louis, located in the northwest of Senegal. At the time of writing, ASC La Linguère is number 8 in the Ligue 1 2010-2011 of Senegal. The club has become the draw specialist of Senegalese football, drawing 11 of their 15 matches so far this season.

As far I know, Gomis made his debut for ASC La Linguère in the season of 2009. I cannot see that med made the list of scorers during the season. Gomis scored three league goals during the season of 2010 and forced his way into the first team of ASC La Linguère. Gomis also made his debut in the CAF Champions League 2010 where ASC La Linguère eventually got knocked out by Malian side Djoliba AC.

The current campaign, the Ligue 1 2010-2011, has been a breakthrough for Gomis, having scored six of the 15 league goals of his club. Gomis has played in 13 of the matches. In March 2011, Gomis received national recognition when he was named in the squad of the Senegal U-23 national football team, preparing for an important qualifier for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom. Gomis made a substitute appearance when Senegal played a goalless draw at home against Angola on 26.03.2011. In the return match, on 09.04.2011, Gomis started the match, partnering Abdou Khadre Dieylani Fall, the AJ Auxerre striker presented in my post from 03.11.2010.The Senegal U-23 national football team won on the away goal rule and is one step closer to the London Olympics.

In April and May 2011, Gomis was also part of the Senegal U-23 national football team that sensationally lost on aggregate to Guinea-Bissau during two qualifying matches for the 2011 All Africa Games. Gomis made substitute appearances in both matches.

Gomis is born 24.11.1990 which makes him 20 years old. As far as I know, Gomis is a typical center forward but it is currently difficult to find more information about his style of play. However, based on his four appearances for the Senegal U-23 national football team during the last two months, his excellent scoring form in the Senegalese top league and his young age, I dear to say that Gomis is a player to watch for the future.

The name of Gomis is often spelled in different ways. He is known as both “Mohamed” and “Mouhamed” and both “Remy” and “Remi”.
