Lacina Traore had a crazy first half for Monaco in the Coupe de France on Sunday as the side from The Principality ran out 10-2 winners against St Jean Beaulieu.
Traore scored no less than four goals for Monaco in the first half as they took a 5-0 lead into the break.
The Ivory Coast forward was unable to add to his tally in the second half though as he was sent off with just seconds remaining of the opening 45.
Traore had only previously scored two goals for Monaco all season in 10 appearances, totalling 470 minutes.
AS Monaco published highlights on their YouTube channel of the 10-2 win over St Jean Beaulieu and just a video of their first half performance.
Unfortunately, there is no video of Lacina Traore’s sending off. The former Everton loanee saw red for violent conduct.
See the clips below and the Twitter reaction to Lacina Traore’s amazing first half performance.
Huge fan of Lacina Traore's work here. "Look lads, I've scored four – that should be enough. I'm going to get off." pic.twitter.com/Mch1ePvBxG
