Center back Baba Mensah played the entire duration for Ilves, as they beat Lahti 2-1 in the Finnish Veikkausliiga on Saturday.
The hardworking defender marshalled the defence with his defensive partners to block several attempts on goal against his side.
Ngueukam broke the deadlock in the 11th minute at the Tammelan Stadion in Tampere, a goal that brought live to the home side.
Tanska then deservedly doubled the lead in first half injury time to cushion the lead for the hosts.
Henri Anier from the spot reduced the deficit but later turned to be only a consolation for the visitors.
Baba Mensah has made 11 appearances for the ‘Yellow and Green’ since joining in June, starting all.
Ilves are 4th on the league table with a couple of games to end the season.
