Super Eagles striker Aaron Samuel was on top of his game on Wednesday afternoon in a friendly match for Russian club CSKA Moscow against FC Torrevieja.
The bulky left-footed player opened scoring in the 13th minute, before he added his second goal in the 48th minute.
The former Shooting stars striker completed his hat-trick in the 56th minute of the encounter just before Russia international Fedor Chalov added a hat-trick of his own in the 65th, 79th and 88th minutes. Another Russian international Zhinronkin scored an own goal in between.
On evidence of this performance, Samuel who was touted to be on his way to Norway during the winter transfer window has continued to strengthen his position within the team.
