Chinwendu Ihezuo scored twice in Henan Huishang’s 4-0 victory over Guangdong Meizhou in a Chinese Women's Super League game on Saturday.
The 22-year-old forward, who has been in dazzling form since teaming up with Henan in April, scored her second league brace of the season.
Before this, Ihezuo had scored twice in her side's 5-1 thrashing of Dalian Quanjian at the Dalian Olympic Sports Centre last week.
The Nigeria international opened the scoring just eight minutes into the match before hitting her brace four minutes later.
After the restart, Lou Jiahui scored her sixth and seventh goal of the season to wrap up the victory for the Henan at the Henan Provincial Stadium.
