Josh Maja has recorded his first hat-trick for club and country after striking thrice in Bordeaux ’s 6-0 decimation of Nimes on Tuesday.

The visitors came to the Matmut Atlantique with the ambition of ending their eight-game winless run, however, they were blown aside by the hosts.

Maja, the unfamiliar Nigerian hero put Bordeaux two goals up in the space of 37 minutes, before completing his treble eight minutes into the second half.

In the process, he becomes the fourth best goal scorer aged 20 or under in the top five European leagues this season with five goals.

Nimes got punished for their defensive shortcomings as Nicolas de Preville powered in the fourth goal for Paulo Sousa’s men in the 58th minute.

As if that was not enough, Brazil’s Otavio scored a late brace to complete the obliteration to the disappointment of the Crocodiles.

Maja, who boasts of one cap for Nigeria lasted for 75 minutes as he was replaced by Toma Basic, while his compatriot Samuel Kalu was introduced for Preville in the 66th minute. (Goal)
