On-loan from Bundesliga club VfB Stuttgart, Striker Mohamed Sankoh made his Eredivisie debut in Vitesse Arnhem’s opening 5-2 defeat to Feyenoord on Sunday.

The home side took the lead through Manhoef in the 19-minute, but Feyenoord’s Patrik Wålemark drew parity in the 31st minute before Brazilian Danilo Pereira doubled the visitors’ lead in the 41-minute.

Feyenoord took their lead to halftime at the GelreDome arena.

11-minute into the restart, Nikolai Baden Frederiksen levelled the scoreline for Vitesse from an exciting finish before Mohamed Sankoh was introduced to make his debut in the 57-minutes.
