Aaron Samuel On Target In Guangzhou R&F Loss To Shandong LunengGuangzhou R&F striker Aaron Samuel was unhappy with the 4 - 2 defeat suffered at the hands of Shandong Luneng in the Chinese Super League on Sunday afternoon.

And the scoreline would have been more flattering to the visitors if the Nigeria international had not converted a spot kick in the 76th minute.

“I am the designated penalty taker for my team and I was happy to score,”  said Aaron Samuel to allnigeriasoccer.com.

“We thought we could earn at least a point from the game but our defense lost concentration towards the end of the game.

“We have played two games in a space of three days and this contributed to our tiredness.”

The 21 - year - old Aaron Samuel has averaged exactly 0.5 goals per game since the start of this season.
