Andre Pierre Gignac Scores Brilliant Overhead Kick To Complete Hat-trick

Andre Pierre Gignac Scores Brilliant Overhead Kick To Complete Hat-trick

Andre Pierre Gignac rolled back the years with a brilliant overhead kick to complete a hat-trick as Tigres beat Pumas 3-0 in the Liga MX.

The 34-year-old bagged a brace of penalties on Sunday, first deep in injury time in the first half and again in the 56th minute, but the best was yet to come.

In the 59th minute the ball got played out wide and was crossed into the box where the Frenchman met it with a perfect overhead kick for his third of the game.

Gignac moved to Mexico from Marseille in 2015 but playing in Central America didn't affect his international prospects as he was in the France squad for the 2016 Euros on home soil, even coming on as a substitute in the final.

The former Toulouse forward has been in brilliant form since moving to Tigres and has scored 107 goals in five seasons since moving there.

His form this season has been excellent, bagging 17 goals and three assists in 25 appearances for the team.

Certainly as many goals as Gignac has scored in his career the man known best for his aerial ability has probably never scored one as good as Sunday's effort.
