Roberto Soldado scored a very impressive hat-trick for Fenerbahce this afternoon.
The Spanish striker signed for the Turkish giants in August, but hadn't managed to grab a goal for his new team before today's game against Sivasspor.
But he certainly made up for going eight games without a goal, brilliantly netting a hat-trick.
Fenerbahce had taken the lead in the game through Nabil Dirar, but former West Brom striker Thievy Bifouma equalised for the visitors before Soldado stole the show.
The former Tottenham striker - who was disappointing during his time in North London after banging in the goals at Valencia, showed no signs of lacking confidence in front of goal for the treble.
Soldado's first was a brilliant overhead kick after an incredible scramble in the box, where the crossbar was struck twice.
Then his second was a determined effort, where he stripped a defender of the ball before firing home.
And his third was maybe the best, superbly dinking beyond the goalkeeper to complete the hat-trick.
Soldado was the second former Spurs striker to score a hat-trick in Turkey this weekend, after Emmanuel Adebayor bagged three as Istanbul Basaksehir thrashed Galatasaray 6-1 on Saturday.
Upon his £26 million move to White Hart Lane, the Spaniard had hit 81 goals in three seasons with Valencia and had just come off the back a 30-goal campaign. But he never really got going, scoring 16 times in 76 appearances across the two seasons - with the majority being penalties.
He returned to Spain with Villarreal, before making the switch to Turkey, where he's took some time to get going but made his mark this evening.
Keep calm the king is back! #RobertoSoldado

That's our Spurs. #THFC #COYS
