Dalian Yifang striker Nyasha Mushekwi scored a hattrick on Friday in his team’s 3-0 win over Guangzhou R&F.
The 30-year-old Zimbabwe international who was not in the squad in the previous game started in the first eleven in yesterday’s game and played for 83 minutes.
Mushekwi scored his opening goal in the 35th minute after Yanick Carrasco set him up. The forward got his second ten minutes into the second half before rounding up the victory in the 82nd minute.
However, the former CAPS player received a booking a few moments after his third strike.
He has now found the back of the net seven times in the ten appearances he made in this season.
Meanwhile, Dalian Yifang is now in the 14th position with 16 points after seventeen games.
