Neymar? - Nottingham Forest fans react on Twitter to Ryan Mendes performance v MK Dons

The Cape Verde international has been in great form.

Nottingham Forest picked up another win in the Championship yesterday. They scored two goals early on against Milton Keynes Dons before holding out when they conceded a late effort.

The win was well deserved and there is no doubt that Cape Verde international Ryan Mendes was integral to the win.

He returned from injury to add some raw pace to the team and he had a big impact on proceedings.

He set up Nelson Oliveira's first goal, with the Portuguese forward once again outstanding, and then bagged his own in an excellent performance from the on loan attacker.

Mendes, on his day, looks like he can be as unplayable as the man he has essentially replaced - West Ham winger Michail Antonio.

Signed on a loan deal from Lille in the summer the Cape Verde international has thrived in the Championship.

Recently his performances have begun to stand out more and more and the Forest fans know just how important he is to the first-team.

This is fast becoming his best season in football and the Forest fans are thoroughly impressed, with one even having the cheek to dub him Neymar...
