Watch: Roberto Soldado Scores Scrappiest Goal Ever In 20 Minute Hat-Trick For Fenerbache

Watch: Roberto Soldado Scores Scrappiest Goal Ever In 20 Minute Hat-Trick For Fenerbache
By Arthur James O'Dea

With news that Emmanuel Adebayor is scoring hat-tricks for Başakşehir, the Turkish top-flight is a league that doesn't know what it wants to be.

Maybe it is where ageing, once-feted forwards from Europe's top leagues go to rediscover some semblance of their past form...or, see out their careers with relative anonymity but plenty of money - Robin Van Persie, Didier Drogba, Adebayor himself.

Whatever the motivation, former Tottenham Hotspur flop Roberto Soldado is yet another whose path has led to Europe's south easterly end-point - he joined Fenerbahçe earlier this year.

By no means a poor player, his experience with Spurs did sour our understanding perhaps of what he could do.

Sporting the jersey #99, Soldado plays alongside another Spurs luminary in Vincent Janssen.

Well, coming off the bench just after the hour mark, the 32 year old Spaniard entered the fray with both sides drawing 1-1. It did not take long for him to make an impact.

Capitalising on some fairly comical defending, the ball bounced all over the 6 yard box before Soldado pounced and gave Fenerbahçe the lead once more.

He wasn't finished yet. Clearly thrilled to get his first for his new club, Soldado pounced on some lazy defending and finished with the aplomb that fans of Valencia would recognise from his far more profitable time with the club.

With Sivasspor visibly struggling to maintain interest in the match, a Fenerbahçe breakaway resulted in Soldado receiving the ball as he ran away from goal.

The adjustment he made in order to finish off the move was nothing short of delightful.

This result keeps Fenerbahçe within 6 points of top spot.
