The Nigeria international got two goals for Gus Poyet’s men as they blew aside their hosts at the Jinan Olympic Sports Center Stadium

Obafemi Martins scored a brace for Shanghai Shenhua as they defeated Shandong Luneng 3-1 in the first leg of the Chinese FA Cup quarter finals on Wednesday.

The Super Eagles forward who was missing in Shanghai Shenhua’s 3-0 loss to Tianjin  Quanjian on Sunday, opened scoring in the encounter with a spectacular acrobatic volley in the third minute.

He completed his brace with a beautifully placed shot to give the Hongkou Stadium outfit the advantage needed, as they prepare for the second leg on July 30.

Gus Poyet’s men continue their league campaign this weekend by hosting Beijing Guoan on July 23.
