Ghana striker Jordan Ayew scored and set up the other to inspire relegation-trapped Sochaux to a crucial 2-0 victory over Toulouse in the French top-flight on Saturday night.

With the World Cup looming, Ayew seems to have regained his confidence after scoring for Sochaux in their league match last week.

This shows that he is peaking in time for coach Kwesi Appiah’s naming of his 30-man provisional squad for the tournament in Brazil in June.

It was a victory that has improved Sochaux’s chances of surviving relegation as they have overtaken Valenciennes to go 18th with 30 point but are still 5 points shy of 17h-placed Evian TG who still have a game in hand.

Sochaux’s triumphant night was brilliantly spear-headed by the Ghana international who scored just on the quarter of an hour mark before setting up Roy Contout to put the game beyond the visitors four minutes after recess.

But before Jordan set up Contout for the second, the French international had been on hand to provide a cross which the on-loan Marseille star converted with a pinpoint header.

Contout’s moment arrived to register his 4th goal of the season but it was Jordan whose pace and artistry proved too tight for the Toulouse defence to cope with as he weighed in a cross for him to head home.

The goal marks Jordan’s second in two games running as he scored against Bastia last weekend.

    He’s improving just like waris

  2. reagam says:

    Where is Drogba he should be ashamed of himself

  3. Viper says:

    To to be fair to Jordan,he is not a typical goal scorer,he is more of an attacking midfielder,has bags of skills,more to come from him.

  4. Wassarian1 says:

    Jordan this is not about your father..This is about you Jordan..This is for you..This is for the Future of Black-stars…Keep Working Hard…Everything Good Takes time…..

  5. Wassarian2 says:

    My brother Wassarian1 I agree with u, Jordan’s destiny is in his own hands. There is no more Dada-bee here. Is time to play for himself,I think Andre has qualified. Jordan is in the process.

  6. Biggie says:

    Congrats. Keep it up. Our Black stars are doing well in europe.

  7. Willie says:

    I think the loan move to Sochaux is really helping Jordan to develop. At least the he is getting the much needed playing time.

  8. alomos says:

    without him Sochaux would’ve tied cos he had one goal plus an assist.

    why the #3 jersey for Gyan and J. Ayew?

  9. Adebayo says:

    Jordan was great in this game! He was unlucky not have a hat trick since before he scored he had already hit the post twice on different occasions!

  10. Isaac says:

    If jordan will leave dat etrimd3 behind him, den i see him become great foodballer because lets be hournest, dis boy is a talented footballer who i believe plays even better football dan his bro Andre

  11. Isaac says:

    The only dff is dat Andre plays with more seriousness n determination.jordan should adopt dis fm his bro n he will be perfect player.

  12. Dr Who says:

    Jordan only needs to get out of the shadows of his father and Dede and I tell you that he will developed into a deadly striker…the dada ba thing must end.

  13. Chinedu says:

    Sunzu is the one scoring not this flop.

  14. lukman says:

    Chinedu .shut up ok .The boy is doing well so what is your problem. Na wa ooo

  15. 4real says:

    Ur Destiny is in ur own hands Jordan,if u can put more seriousness in your game u will become one of the deadly strikers in the world.keep it up there’s more football in u which haven’t come out yet it left with u to let it out.

  16. asco says:

    Yes, he needs to put more seriousness in his games like dede. This boy is a fantastic player but the Dada bee like attitude on the pitch is killing him.maybe that is his style.

  17. Kokroko Tk says:

    I agree he needs to distance himself from his bro. Do he could focus. This will also be good for Dede as well.
