Jeff Mensah scores for Viborg in heavy pre-season warm-up win

Danish-born Ghanaian international midfielder Jeff Mensah opened the scoring for Viborg in their 5-0 demolition of Silkeborg in a pre-season warm-up friendly on Saturday.

The 21-year-old raced Viborg into the lead under just one minute with a sensational strike from outside of the box.

After opening the floodgates, Viborg went on to score more goals to hand the newly-promoted Superliga side a miserable defeat.

Viborg were relegated from the Danish top-flight and they are keen to fight their way back into the top-tier.

Jeff, who scored the opening goal, did not enjoy regular playing time last season while his senior brother Kevin Mensah scored 8 times from midfield.

Jeff and Kevin were born to a Ghanaian father and a Danish mother.
