Obafemi Martins Make Case For Super Eagles Recall With Hattrick For Shanghai Shenhua


Forgotten Super Eagles Forward Obafemi Martins fired a hattrick for his Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua Greenland to help them to a 4-2 1in over Hebei ‎CFFC.


The 33 year old former Inter-Milan forward was listed by Owngoalnigeria.com among five players who can add bite to the attack of the Super Eagles of Nigeria two days ago, and he proved his abilities against Hebei CFFC.

Martins drew his side level twice in the game in the 62nd and 76 minutes respectively before Fredy Guarin gave them the lead for the first time with eight minutes left to play in the game.

Two minutes into time added on, Martins secured the match ball with his third goal of the game to seal a comfortable 4-2 win from his side even though they had to come from behind twice.

The hattrick takes his season tally in all competitions to four in 2018,after netting in the Asian Champions League game against Australian side Sydney FC earlier in the year.
