Ghanaian striker Emmanuel Mensah continued to showcase his prowess on the field, maintaining an outstanding performance for CSM Sighetu in Romania.
In a thrilling encounter against CSM Satu, Mensah exhibited his goal-scoring finesse by netting his eighth goal in just 10 appearances, further solidifying his impact on the team.
Mensah’s pivotal moment came in the 35th minute when he calmly converted a penalty, equalizing the score after his precise pass resulted in a foul against his teammate within the 18-yard box. This response nullified Moussa Samake’s earlier header for CSM Satu, who had initially taken the lead in the 10th minute following a well-executed corner.
Empowered by Mensah’s goal, CSM Sighetu maintained their momentum in the second half. The turning point arrived three minutes after Catalin Sofroni entered the game in the 67th minute, as CSM Sighetu seized the lead. The home team resiliently held on to their advantage until the final whistle, clinching a hard-fought 2-1 victory.
Emmanuel Mensah’s impressive tally of eight goals in ten appearances underscores his seamless transition to the Romanian football scene since his move from Ghana. His compatriot, Abdul Razak, a former Heart of Lions player, also contributed significantly by completing the entire 90 minutes for CSM Sighetu Mare.
The triumph propelled CSM Sighetu to the fourth position in the league table, accumulating a commendable 21 points from 14 matches. This favorable standing firmly places them in contention for a coveted promotion spot, signaling a promising trajectory for the team in their quest for success.
