Gervinho scores incredible solo goal for Hebei China Fortune

Football News

Gervinho completed a surprise €18 million move to Hebei China Fortune in January and, on the evidence of his latest goal, is currently busy tearing up the Chinese Super League.

The 28-year-old was playing against Henan Jianye when he picked the ball up deep in his own half and ran the length of the pitch, leaving two opponents on the deck, before producing a composed finish past the goalkeeper.

Interestingly, the ‘assist’ - if you can call it that - came from the Argentina international Ezequiel Lavezzi, who joined the Chinese outfit from Paris Saint-Germain in February. (Scroll down this page to watch Gervinho’s goal).

Hebei China Fortune were actually defending a corner when Gervinho launched his one-man counter-attack and scored.

The Ivory Coast international’s goal made it 3-1 to the home side - and they eventually wrapped up the three points, running out 4-3 winners at the end of a pulsating encounter.

Gervinho's career in Europe

Gervinho’s superb performances with Lille earned him a move to Arsenal in 2011; however, he struggled for consistency at the Emirates Stadium and was eventually sold to AS Roma two years later.

The African forward was better in Serie A, but Roma decided to cash in following Hebei China Fortune’s lucrative offer earlier this year.
