Moussa Sow (born 19 January 1986) is a French-born Senegalese football player who currently plays for Lille.

In his first couple of seasons, Sow has made his mark mostly in cup competitions, scoring a brace for Stade Rennes against USC Corte on 6 January 2006 in the Coupe de France[1] and one in an away game against Lille in the Coupe de la Ligue.

After his contract with Rennes came to an end, the 24-year-old forward signed a three year deal with Lille OSC on 28 June 2010.[3] Sow scored on his debut for Lille in a 1–1 draw away to his former club Rennes.He did not score again in the league until a 90th minute goal on 19 September gave Lille all three points in a tough home contest against Auxerre.

Sow scored his first hat-trick for Lille on 13 November 2010, the goals came in a 5-2 away victory to Caen, with both Gervinho and Franck Beria grabbing 90th minute goals to seal the win.[6] Less than a month later on 5 December, Sow netted another hat-trick this time against Lorient.[7] His goals helped Lille to a 6-3 win and firmly placed his side into contention for the Ligue 1 crown.[8] Lille went into the winter break in sole position of first place, as Sow fired in their only goal in a 1-1 draw with Saint Étienne on 39 December.

Sow scored his 22nd goal of the Ligue 1 campaign in a 2-2 draw with PSG on 21 May 2011. The result ensured that Lille would secure their first Ligue 1 title since 1954.[10] Sow scored his third hat-trick, on the final day of the season, as Lille tied the knot on their championship season with an emphatic 3-2 victory over former club Stade Rennes.[11] Sow was the top scorer during the 2010–11 Ligue 1 season with 25 league goals and also contributed with three assists.

On 5 September 2009, Sow made his debut for the Senegal national football team against Angola.
