Ghana youth midfielder Kudus Mohammed netted a consolation for FC Nordsjælland in their 2-1 loss against Esbjerg in the Danish Superliga on Sunday.

But the lead did not last as Yuri Yakovenko pulled the visitors level four minutes later.
Danish defender Carlo Holse silenced the Right to Dream Park with his 59th minute bullet header to give Esbjerg a 2-1 victory.

Emmanuel Oti Essigba cameoed for the victors while Clinton Antwi watched from the losers substitutes bench but Godsway Donyoh and Abubakar Sadiq were left out of the matchday squad.
