Zimbabwe’s Nyasha Mushekwi scored a hat-trick to fire Dalian Yifang to a 3-0 victory over Guangzhou R&F in Friday’s Chinese Super League encounter.

The 30-year-old continued his impressive form in front of goal for the Blue Hawks with a treble against Dragan Stojkovic’s charges.

In the 35th minute, the Zimbabwe international’s rifled a left-footed shot past Yuelei Cheng.

Mushekwi doubled the lead in the 56th minute after being picked with a cross from Wang Jinxian. And with just nine minutes of action left, the Zimbabwean completed his treble.

The attacker was shown a caution for his troubles and was replaced by Wang Yaopeng in the 84th minute.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns’ marksman has now scored seven goals in 10 league outings this season and will be looking to add to that tally when Dalian Yifang lock horns with Beijing Guoan on August 14.
