By James Agberebi: Nigeria striker Obafemi Martins was in action for Shanghai Shenhua who lost 4-1 to Guangzhou Evergrande in the 2018 Chinese Super Cup on Monday.
Shanghai Shehua won the Chinese FA Cup last season, while Guangzhou Evergrande were crowned league champions.
Martins, who scored in both legs of the FA Cup final win against Shanghai SIPG, played 90 minutes in Monday’s defeat to Guangzhou Evergrande.
Bowen Huang put Guangzhou Evergrande 1-0 up in the 26th minute before Fredy Guarin equalised for Shanghai Shenhua on 37 minutes.
Alan restored Guangzhou’s lead in the 43rd minute, with Lin Gao adding the third goal on 65 minutes.
And in the 90th minute, Ricardo Goulart completed the rout.
The last time Shanghai Shenhua won the Chinese Super Cup was in 2001 and they have won it three times, while Guangzhou have now won the cup four times.
