SPORT : Yakubu can’t stop scoring in China

Nigerian striker, Yakubu Aiyegbeni scored his sixth goal of the season for Chinese club, Guangzhou R&F on Sunday in the club's 2-0 win over Qingdao Jonoon.

Yakubu scored after 75 minutes in a tight game at Yuexiushan as the Chinese Super League entered matchday 19.

The "Yak" received a pass just inside the penalty area and swivelled on a sixpence before driving a low shot into the bottom corner.

A Nigerian was involved in Guangzhou's second goal but it was not Yakubu.

Former junior international, Gabriel Melkam, who is on the books of Qingdao Jonoon upended Lu Lin in the box allowing Rodriguez de Jesus to emphatically drive home the penalty eight minutes from time.

The win takes Guangzhou R&F to sixth place on the standings with 25 points from 19 matches.
