After just nine appearances, Javier MASCHERANO has finally scored for his new club Hebei Fortune!
The home side entertained Shandong Luneng in the Chinese FA Cup and were one goal down until the referee pointed to the spot in the 79th minute when a player was caught for a handball. MASCHERANO didn’t take the penalty but instead the most prolific defensive midfielder in Argentine football was at the right place to score from the rebound after Shandong’s keeper had guessed the penalty correctly.
The Chinese commentator of the game also noticed just how special the occasion was and went mental, which is an obvious thing in MASCHERANO’s case. Unfortunately, the goal didn’t help much in Hebei’s cause as they went down 2-3
Nevertheless, a big congratulations on the monumental occasion El Jefecito!
