Ghana forward Majeed Waris was on target for FC Nantes in their 2-1 defeat against Rennes in the French Cup at the Roazhon Park on Wednesday evening.

Following a cagey first half, Waris scored the opener with a beautiful strike for the Canaries on the 49th minute but Edson Mexer restored parity on the hour mark.

Rennes secured victory courtesy a late goal from French defender Damien Da Silva.

Waris enjoyed the full duration of the match with his compatriot Enoch Kwarteng.

He has scored three goals in his 17 appearances for FC Nantes in his debut season.
