The Senegal midfielder made his 33rd appearance of the season as the Bordelais downed the Canaris away in Ligue 1 on Sunday

Younousse Sankhare’s solitary goal was enough to see Bordeaux past Nantes in a Ligue 1 clash played at the Stade de la Beaujoire on Sunday.

The Senegal international’s 65th-minute strike saw Bordeaux secure only their fourth away win in their last 12 outings as they look set for a top five finish and qualification for the UEFA Europa League football next season.

Sankhare squeezed his effort between the legs of Koffi Djidji and under Maxime Dupe to net the match’s only goal.

The strike was the midfielder's second since his arrival from Lille in the January transfer window and he's fast proving to be a colossal addition for Les Girondins, appearing 11 times and scoring two goals.

Prior his move to Jocelyn Gourvennec's sode, the 27-year-old had also appeared in 21 of Lille’s matches.
