Ghana international defender Jonathan Mensah helped his Evian TG side to secure their top-flight status at the expense of Jordan Ayew’s Sochaux after hammering them 3-0 in a decider on Saturday night. 

The clash at the Stade Auguste-Bonal was the decider on which last club join Ajaccio and Valenciennes to return to the Ligue 2 and Evian powerfully bundled Sochaux out of the top-flight completely outclassing them at their own backyard to send agonising feeling at Montbelliard.

With just a single point separating Sochaux in 18th from Evian in 17th, both teams knew that victory in Montbéliard would guarantee their Ligue 1 survival and relegate their opponents. With the stakes so high, FCSM coach Hervé Renard and opposite number Pascal Dupraz had exchanged barbs in the build-up to the game, and the ill-feeling spilled over into the early exchanges on Saturday evening.

With both Jordan Ayew and Jonathan Mensah starting and finishing the tie on an emotional final day, Evian ensured victory and it was Wass who started it for Evian and later hit a double.

Modou Sougou whipped a cross in from the right-hand side and Wass checked his run before unleashing an unstoppable overheadkick into the far bottom corner for his eighth.

Wass turned provider and sent an in-swinging corner which took a deflection before finding Angoula at the back-post who prodded home for 2-0.

Jordan could have halve the deficit for Sochaux in the 62nd minute. The on-loan Marseille star linked up well with Emmanuel Mayuka and Jordan punched the returned pass with a measure of precision but his effort missed narrowly.

Evian added the third and extinguished every last Sochaux hope of staging a comeback.

The two players will join the Ghana camp next week to begin preparations for the 2014 World Cup.

    It’s sad for Sochaux. Too bad Jordan’s goal was disallowed.

  2. Johnny says:

    Jordan is not very efficient as a striker. I’ve watched him play a lot; he dribbles around and loses the ball. With all the other strikers at hand, I believe Jordan should give way for Accam. Accam is very similar to Warris and that is what we need, to keep our opponents away from our fragile defense.

    • king says:

      propaganda secretary for Accam, what has accam achieved in football? and what is the level of the swedish leageu as compared to french leaguue, jordan will be a lionel messin in sweden.

      Even papa Nkrumah will agree to this.

      • Papa Nkrumah says:

        Lol. @King. Until it is done, I can not make sweeping statements. I think the point is that we have an embarrassment of talents when it comes to midfielders and lately enough strikers who are promising but not proven.

    Guys, just ignore Benny and this dude who calls himself Navy seal USA. I don’t even believe he is in the US. These two are so uncouth and improperly brought up. They have been using some terrible language on this site. They are a shame to Ghana. To the two of you, I don’t know or care about your beef with Selfmade or whoever, but take this advice from a guy who is older and wiser, do please take your insults somewhere else. It is very unghanaian. This site belongs to descent and serious people. I don’t know what Selfmade or whoever said about you and Benny , and seriously, I don’t care, I however believe whatever he said about you two Is right. Your behavior on this site has demonstrated that the two of you are whatever he said and more. A real disgrace to Ghanaians. If Selfmade claims somebody is using his name to insult innocent people on this site, I believe the two of you are the culprits. I don’t know this Selfmade guy, but I’m advising him too to take any insults somewhere else. If you read this piece and become angry at me and choose to insult me, go ahead . I have a thick skin. Thanks.
