CSKA Moscow’s Aaron Samuel ends 22-match goal drought with first career hat-trick

Before his exploits against the Spanish fourth division side, the Nigeria international had failed to score for the Horses since August 2017

Aaron Samuel has scored his first hat-trick since moving to Valerenga from Dolphins in 2012.

The Nigerian found the friendly against Torrevieja the perfect time to get his first treble since moving to Europe, thus ending his 22-game scoreless streak since finding the target against Tosno in a Russian topflight encounter on August 9, 2017.

This will come as a welcome relief to the 23-year-old, having being criticised for not justifying his move from Guangzhou R&F.

Samuel got the first, second and third goals before Fedor Chalov’s treble and Vitalik Gironkin’s late minute strike powered CSKA Moscow 7-0 past the Spanish team.

The win was Viktor Goncharenko men’s third pre-season win as the fine-tune strategies for their Europa League clash against Crvena Zvezda in Belgrade.
