Ghanaian youngster Paul Mensah was on target for Kapfenberg in their 5-3 loss against AFC Wolfsberger in a friendly match on Saturday.

With Wolfsberger taking an early two-goal lead, Mensah halved the deficit with a low strike in the 12th minute before Matthias Puschl pulled parity for the Austrian second-tier side.

However, two quick strikes from the Austrian Bundesliga side, crumbled Kapfenberg's hopes of claiming a point out from the game.

Marco Gantschnig pulled a goal back for Kapfenberg but they could not comeback to draw level as Wolfsberger struck again with five minutes left on the clock.
