Want to feel old? Well Justin Kluivert, son of former Ajax, AC Milan, Barcelona and Newcastle striker Patrick, has just scored a brilliant hat-trick in a 5-1 Eredivisie win over Roda JC.

He finished the 2016/17 season with 20 appearances in all competitions as Ajax reached the Europa League final, and has seen even more game-time this term, taking to the field on 14 occasions.

And today, in the rout over Roda, where he was utterly unplayable, finding the net in the 45th, 60th and 85th minute.

All three of the left winger's strikes were very tidy, but his second striker, a beautifully arrowed finish into the far corner, was the pick of the bunch.
