Ghana midfielder scored a brilliant brace for Nordsjaelland FC in their 4-3 loss to Midtjylland FC in the Danish SuperLig at the MCH Arena on Sunday afternoon.

Nordsjaelland went into the encounter as the bookies underdogs despite their perfect start to the league.

They were pegged back with just a minute on the clock through defender Zsolt Korcsmar's powerful header before Rasmus Nissen doubled the host advantage on the 20th minute mark.

And on the stroke of half time, Nigerian forward Paul Onuachu took the game beyond the sorry Nordsjaelland side with a bullet strike.

Onuachu added his second of the afternoon in the 53rd minute as the match turned to be one-way traffic. However, Godsway Donyoh started the lofty comeback with a goal in the 66th minute before going to add a second in the 80th minute.

Nordsjaelland saw a light at the end of the tunnel after Mathias Jensen reduced the deficit to just a goal in the 95th minute but Midtjylland FC held their nerves to narrowly win the game 4-3.

Meanwhile, compatriot Ernest Asante lasted 90 minutes for Nordsjaelland while Collins Tanor was an unused substitute.

Despite the loss, Nordsjaelland maintain their top spot with 12 points after five games.
