Obafemi Martins scores first goal in 31 months

Popular Nigerian footballer and striker, Obafemi Martins ended his 31 months goal drought as Wuhan Zall played a 1-1 draw with Henan Jianye at the Dongxihu Sports Centre in the Chinese Super League play-offs on Friday.

This is coming after he made eight appearances this season.

Martins scored his first goal since March 2018, after coming off the bench in the 57th minute to net a stoppage-time equaliser as the home side avoided defeat.

Wang Shangyuan’s 25th-minute opener had given Henan Jianye an early lead before Martins combined with Ivoirian Jean Kouassi to salvage a point.

The strike ended Martins’ 31-month goal jinx, after he grabbed a hat-trick for Shanghai Shenhua in a 4-2 win over Hebei CFCC in March 2018.
