Obafemi Martins out for six months with a torn hamstring 

​Nigeria international Obafemi Martins has been ruled out of action for between six and seven months with a torn hamstring his Chinese Super League (CSL) club Shanghai Shenhua announced on Wednesday.

Martins sustained the injury against Kashima Antlers in the Asian Champions League on Tuesday.

The 33-year-old forward was carried off midway through the first half of the continental club fixture which they drew 2-2.

He scored a hat-trick for Shanghai on Saturday in their 4-2 league win over Hebei China Fortune.

The injury ends any faint hopes Martins may have had of making Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr’s squad for this year’s World Cup in Russia.

Shanghai Shenhua are currently sixth in the CSL standings after four games.
