Midfielder Mubarak Wakaso is excited as Jiangsu Suning reached the finals of the Chinese Super League with victory over giants Shanghai SIPG.

“To final,” he posted immediately after the game.

Shanghai SIPG took an early lead through Yang Siyuan before Wu Xi leveled with 12 minutes remaining.

The game was forced to extra time after the first leg ended by the same scoreline.

Wakaso has been a key member of the Jiangsu based side after joining in January from Spanish side Deportivo Alaves.

He has featured in all their games since arriving in China in June.
