Obafemi Martins

Former Super Eagles striker Obafemi Martins was on fire as he netted a hat trick in Shanghai Shenhua’s win over visiting Hebei CFFC.

The away team took the lead in the 48th minute through Chengdong Zhang after a goalless first half.

Obafemi Martins leveled the game in the 62nd minute before Argentine international Ezequiel Lavezzi gave Hebei the lead again two minutes later.

The former Inter Milan forward  restored parity once again in the 74th minute before Colombia International team mate Freddy Guarin increased the tally to 3-2 in the 82nd minute.

Martins completed his hat trick in the 90th minute of the game with distinctive finish of an assist from Jianqing Mao.

It was sweet return for the ‘weapon of mass destruction’ who has been out of the team due to a minor knock.
