Chinedu Obasi scored a brace on his Chinese League One debut as Shenzhen FC hammered Dalian Transcend 6-0 in their first league game of the season.

The Nigeria international who joined the Chinese outfit from AIK in January, bagged a goal in each half of the game to send Sven-Göran Eriksson's men to the top of the log.

Obasi doubled the lead for his team in the 32nd minute after Harold Preciado had put them ahead 21 minutes into the game.

The former Schalke 04 forward grabbed his second goal four minutes into the second half as Cameroonian Aboubakar Oumarou's lone strike and Harold Preciado's hat-trick helped the Shenzhen Stadium outfit to an easy win.

Shenzhen move up to the top spot of the League One standings with a comfortable six goals difference and will visit Yunnan Lijiang for their next fixture on March 18.
