Davies Brace Not Enough For Sochaux

Charlie Davies kept up his goal scoring ways with a brace against Bordeaux.
It was another loss for Charlie Davies this week when his Sochaux side took on Ligue 1 giants Bordeaux, but the American striker continued his goal scoring ways.

After scoring the U.S.'s only goal against Mexico midweek Davies was brought on as a substitute against Bordeaux and provided a lifeline for his side, netting a goal that brought Sochaux back to within one of a draw.

Bordeaux would score again putting the tie out of reach, but the young American was not done. As the match wound down Davies slotted home a second giving the match it's final 3-2 scoreline in favor of the reigning champions.

After the match Davies was full of confidence following another strong showing.

"It's great to score twice against a Champions League team like Bordeaux," Davies said. "This is proof that I have the ability to be a good player in this league."

Two games in Davies has yet to earn his first start for his new French side, but in both matches he has provided a spark for the club and should be pushing for a place in the first eleven in the near future.
