Video: Jordan Ayew scores classic goal in Marseille Cup win
By Akyereko Frimpong-Manson
Ghana youth sensation Jordan Ayew scored a superb goal and set up another as Olympique Marseille cruised to a 4-0 victory over Ligue 2 side Lens on Tuesday night in the French Cup.
The young striker scored his second goal of the season for Didier Deschamps’ men in twelve games with a classic finish in the 68th minute.
He went past four Lens defenders before darting a fierce drive to the top corner of the net from the edge of the penalty box.
The 20-year-old tried his luck at goal with a wonderful flick after 50 minutes but Lens keeper Kasraoui pulled a great save to deny him.
He then set up a golden opportunity for Andre-Pierre Gignac to up the tally but the striker skied the chance.
Jordan then produced another magic moment for substitute Loic Remy who benefited from his superb flick to make it 3-0.
Remy then finished off a Mathieu Valbuena pass on the 90th minute to send Lens parking and put Marseille through to the next round of the competition.
