Nigerian striker Obafemi Martins is happy to show again that he is not a 'spent force'. 

Martins was on fire on Saturday as he netted a hat trick in Shanghai Shenhua’s win over visiting Hebei CFFC.

The away team took the lead in the 48th minute through Chengdong Zhang after a goalless first half.

Martins then leveled the game in the 62nd minute before Argentine international Ezequiel Lavezzi gave Hebei the lead again two minutes later.

The former Inter Milan forward restored parity once again in the 74th minute before Colombia International team mate Freddy Guarin increased the tally to 3-2 in the 82nd minute.

Martins completed his hat trick in the 90th minute of the game with a distinctive finish off an assist from Jianqing Mao and he was quick to go on his instagram page to share a video while also crediting team work for his performance.

Team work ??????

It was sweet return for the ‘weapon of mass destruction’ who has been out of the team due to a minor knock and already many are saying that the Super Eagles coach should give him a chance to fight for a shirt to Russia.
