It didn’t take long for Salomon Rondon to get off the mark for new club Dalian Yifang, with him scoring on his debut in a dramatic 3-3 draw against Tianjin Teda today.
Rondon completed a £16.5m move to China just yesterday – a move that saw him reunited with Rafa Benitez – and he scored the following 84th minute goal to secure a point for his new side:
Considering he’s said to be earning £250,000 per week at Dalian, they’ll be hoping this is the first of many goals from the big Venezuelan this season!
The game featured two Yannick Carrasco goals, a red card for Dalian’s Qin Sheng, a late penalty and an even later equaliser for Salomon Rondon, leaving both teams to settle for a point in the six-goal thriller in Tianjin’s 54,000 seater stadium.
This result marked Rafa Benitez’s fourth game at the club, with him overseeing 3-1 and 3-2 wins, a 4-1 defeat to Guangzhou Evergrande FC and this 3-3 draw against Tianjin Teda.
