Jordan Ayew got on target for Sochaux

Ghana forward Jordan Ayew scored to help Sochaux keep their relegation survival course alive with a 2-0 win over OG Nice in the French Ligue 1 on Sunday evening. 

The 22-year-old cemented the victory for Herve Renard's side with a 56th minute finish at the Stade Auguste-Bonal.

Sochaux's fight to beat the drop has seen them maintain an unbeaten run in their last six games in the top-flight and they perpetuated that with an impressive victory over Nice.

Serbian international Nemanja Pejcinovic scored an own-goal to gift Sochaux the lead before the on-loan Olympique Marseille sealed the win for them 11 minutes into the second department.

After Jordan's goal, Nice tried to come into the game but Sochaux clinched their lead and won the game with Jordan lasting till the 81st minute.

The strike has taken his season's tally to four in 15 games.

    He has been consistent enough. Playing every week n clearly any fair minded person could see that he his improved in his recent games. Don't make it looks like people only dislikes him. At least is not like when he started the loan he is playing better n helping the the term to survive

    Ghanaman you don't have to be sarcastic to express your opinion .You made me insult your family because you insult me for no reason some time ago.We all come to this site to express our opinion .We cannot express the same opinion.I know you like Dauda but l don't think he deserve any place in the black stars.We must all respect diverse opinion..That make us civil.

    There are certain intangibles that stats don't catch in a game. I think the best way to observe a player is to watch them in action. Stats matter for games like basketball ball and American football but there certain intangibles that stats don't catch. Based on goal scoring stats one could conclude that r9 is better than zidane but if u watched the 2006 worldcup game between Brazil and France zizou was unplayable overshadowing both ronaldinho and r9. I believe jordan is extremely talented is if given the best support strucure will excel. We as a nation should try to inspire confidence in our players because that is to the benefit of the nation. But some are quick to chastise the players, coaches and the FA. There is nothing wrong with criticism if it is done constructively. Some make it seem as if this guy is not good at all and is only playing because of his father which is false obviously he has some talent if not he would not have been playing at all let alone division 1 football.

    Stats matter but you have to look at the recent stats also and form and opinion. You should look at 1) Recent stats 2) Stats per minutes played. 3) All around game. For example the stats don't tell you the defensive contribution. The only way to get the wholistic stats is to go to the site

    Who deserves to go instead. It is 4 goals and 1 assists in the last 8 games. That is very good. What have you done in the last 8 weeks??

    It is good enough. He has more than earned his spot! Which Ghanaian striker in the last 8 weeks has been better??

    He definitely deserves to go to Brazil his all round have has been impressive since he went on loan and anyone who says otherwise is just being spiteful and not objective ie @ benito even his his work rate has improved tremendously. People should watch games in order to form their opinions instead of reading statistics because stats don't play football.

    4 in 15 is not good enough to secure a selection to Brazil unless the coach for the purpose of psychology select him alongside his brother dede.
