Nyasha Mushekwi scoring form continues, Warriors star nets brace

There seems to be no stopping former Mamelodi Sundowns striker Nyasha Mushekwi who has now surpassed the 20-goal mark in China in just 25 games.

On Sunday, Mushekwi grabbed a brace for Zhejiang Greentown in a 4-1 away win over Nanjing City after having also scored the opener in a 3-0 win over Suzhou Dongwu in mid-week.

The 34-year-old has now taken his tally to 21 goals in 25 games this season as his side chase promotion to the Chinese Super League.

Such has been Mushekwi’s scoring form of late that he has been on target in all of the last five games for his club.

His double on Sunday means he has six goals in the last five games.

This is the second time that he has scored in five consecutive games having done the same from late July into August through a period in which he scored seven.

The top scorer award is now his for the taking with Nigerian forward Chisom Egbuchulam of leaders Meizhou Hakka on 17 goals.

Mushekwi’s club is in third place but on the same number of points as the team in second in the chase for promotion to the Chinese Super League.

The top two teams in League One go up automatically while those in third and fourth at the end of the season then go into the promotion play-offs against teams from Super League.

Since his first season at Sundowns in 2010, the 34-year-old has been in double figures on seven occasions proving just how much he scores despite all the criticism that he gets for his style of play.

In his time at Sundowns he scored 40 goals in 53 starts.

Through his time abroad he has also earned good money to be also able to buy his former club CAPS United a bus and afford a life of comforts – KickOff.
