Ghana forward, Majid Waris was on the scoresheet for Nantes as they beat Montpellier 2-0 at the Stade de la Beaujoire on Tuesday night.
The 26-year-old who was making his 17th appearance for Ligue 1 side was named in attack with Argentine, Emiliano Sala, but the two failed to find the net in a goalless first half.
However, Waris found the back of the net in the 62nd minute.
Midfielder Valentin Rongier’s diagonal pass found Waris and he finished past Montpellier goalie, Benjamin Lecomte.
That was the opening for Nantes and 19 minutes later, Nicolas Pallois, headed home the second for Nantes.
Waris was subbed in the 90th minute by Samuel Moutossamy to the admiration of the fans and Nantes head coach, Valid Halihodzic.
The former FC Porto man has scored two times in the ongoing campaign.
The result pushed Nantes to 11th on 23 points.
