By Johnny Edward: Nigeria striker Obafemi Martins is targeting a win with Shanghai Shenhua when they take on Sydney FC in Wednesday’s Asian Champions League (ACL) Group H clash, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The game will be his third appearance in the continental competition since he made his debut last season for Shanghai Shenhua in their 2-0 defeat to Brisbane Roar.
 
Martins was instrumental in Shanghai Shenhua recording a 1-1 draw away at Kashima Antlers in their opening group game last week and he is yet to taste victory in the competition after two games.
 
The 33-year-old Nigerian international is expected to lead Shanghai Shenhua attack as they seek their first group win in the competition.
Australian side Sydney FC on the other hand will have to look to improve on their first game 2-0 defeat to Suwon Bluewings.

    Obafemi Martins remains Super Eagles best top 9. He is a free scorer and very dependable in times of trouble. His statistics is a proof; 18 / 38 plus 8 assists.
    I think this guy merits a call up for the friendlies.
    Sentiments aside, show me a Nigerian player better than Obagoal in that position.
    Ighalo has not done enough to convince Nigerians that he deserves to be in Russia.
    Congrats Martins!

  • A fit Martins is better than all our strikers in Super Eagles based on his scoring prowess in front of goal
