OBAFEMI MARTINS ON TARGET IN SHANGHAI SHENHUA ROUT

Former Super Eagles striker Obafemi Martins scored the last goal for Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua in their 4-0 rout over Hangzhou Greentown.

Martins struck in the 89th minute of the encounter for his second goal in 10 games for the team he joined from MLS side Seattle Sounders for €2.7M in February.

However the Nigerian was upstaged by his African counterpart Demba Ba who went home with the match ball after hitting a hattrick with goals in the 42nd,74th and 81st minute.

Fifth placed Shanghai Shenhua are however still a whopping nine points behind the league leaders Guangzhou Evergrande after 14 round of games in the Chinese Super League.
