Ghana midfielder Rabiu Mohammed failed to come off the bench in Evian’s 5-1 thrashing of Sochaux on Saturday.
The 23-year-old was surprisingly dropped from the starting lineup in the massive Ligue 1 win.
The ex Udinese player has been enjoying regular first team action since returning from the 2013 Nations Cup where he excelled for Ghana.
The tireless tackler’s service was however not required as the hosts ran riot at the Parc de Sports.
A brace each from Cedric Barbosa and Saber Khelifa with a goal from Kevin Berigaud proved way to strong for Sochaux who had Cedric Bakambu scoring the consolation.
The win now lifts Evian from the relegation zone to 16th while pushing their opponents into the drop zone.
