Danish-born Ghanaian international midfielder Jeff Mensah opened the scoring for Viborg in their 5-0 demolition of Silkeborg in a pre-season warm-up friendly on Saturday. 

The 21-year-old raced Viborg into the lead under just one minute with a sensational strike from outside of the box.

After opening the floodgates, Viborg went on to score more goals to hand the newly-promoted Superliga side a miserable defeat.

Viborg were relegated from the Danish top-flight and they are keen to fight their ways back into the top-tier.

Jeff, who scored the opening goal, did not enjoy regular playing minutes last season while his senior brother Kevin Mensah scored 8 times from midfield.

Jeff and Kevin were born to a Ghanaian father and a Danish mother.

    @b4world, that is the problem with Ghana and Africa as a whole; we are so mentally enslaved such that we think these half white kids are better because of their skin tone. Just look at how people still worship Jerry Rawlings even after killing their parents, and stripping their mothers naked in public and flogging them.
