Ghana striker Majeed Waris was on target for his club side FC Nantes when they beat Montpellier 2-0 in the French Ligue 1 Tuesday night.

The 27-year-old enigmatic opener for the Yellow and Green lads on the 62nd minute as they whipped Montpellier 2-0 at the Stade de la Beaujoire.

Waris goal marked his third goal of the season in 17 appearances for the French club and has an assist to his credit.

Warris impressed greatly before making way for Samuel Moutoussamy in the 87th minute.

Nantes sealed the win in the 81st minute through Nicolas Pallois' bullet header.

The win moves Nantes to the 11th position on the league log with 23 points after 18 games.
