Ex Hammer Watch- Diafra Sakho scores two goals v Caen for Rennes

Former West Ham striker Diafra Sakho seems to have settled quite well back in France and scored his first league goals (to add to his Coupe de la Ligue effort) for Stade Rennais against Caen over the weekend. The game was quite an eventful one, featuring a brace from Sakho, two missed penalties from Caen, a late equaliser from the home side and Swiss officials in the middle and running the sidelines for this fixture, as part of a swap deal between the Swiss and the French Football Federations.

Both of Sakho’s goals came in the first half- the 1st on 9 minutes, and the second on 21.

Rennes moved to 7th in the league standings as a result of the Senegalese striker’s brace and will face Troyes in their next fixture.
