In-form Troisi lands rare hat-trick

Socceroo James Troisi has continued his fine form with a man-of-the-match performance which included three assists in Belgium overnight.

Troisi laid off the pass for all three of Zulte-Waregem’s goals in their 3-1 triumph away to KV Oostende.

The 26-year-old Australian attacker is in red hot form, having scored last week for Zulte-Waregem and almost producing a wonder goal too.

He maintained that form, with his corner headed home by Mamoutou N’Diaye on 26 minutes.

On 51 minutes, Troisi played a clever ball into the box for Bryan Verboom to convert.

And he completed his hat-trick of assists, with a lofted diagonal ball for Karel D’Haene to head past the keeper.

Troisi looks likely to play a major part in Zulte-Waregem’s fight against relegation this term, scoring three goals in eight appearances since joining the club.
