Goals for Yakubu, Barrios and Kanoute but no Drogba in Chinese FA Cup

Three big names in Chinese football all scored in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Wednesday but Didier Drogba was nowhere to be seen.

Ex-Blackburn Rovers striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni backed up his goal on debut in the Chinese Super League on the weekend by again scoring but he was unable to help Guangzhou R&F to victory with his new club going down 4-3 to Liaoning Whowin.

Former Borussia Dortmund ace Lucas Barrios was also on target for Guangzhou Evergrande with the equalizing goal as they came from behind to beat Henan Construction 2-1.

Frederic Kanoute, who recently joined Beijing Guoan from Sevilla, scored a double to open his account as his club easily ran out 6-0 winners over Qingdao Jonoon.

However, Shanghai Shenhua could not find a place for star signing Didier Drogba in their line-up with the ex-Chelsea ace still yet to make his debut alongside former Blues teammate Nicolas Anelka. Shanghai were knocked out of the tournament 5-3 on penalties to Changchun Yatai after extra-time ended scoreless.
