New Southampton striker Graziano Pelle wasted no time in getting off the mark as he netted twice in a 6-0 win over Dutch third division side KSK Hasselt.
The Italian recently joined the Saints from Dutch side Feyenoord and it was back in the same country that he opened his account for his new side, as Ronald Koeman's men thumped their opponents in a one-sided encounter.
Pelle, who started the game after joining up with the squad two days earlier, broke the deadlock within five minutes with a neat finish from close range.
He showed just why Southampton chose him to replace their talisman of recent years in Rickie Lambert with his and the side's second, clinically finishing a cross from the right flank just after the half hour.
Koeman made 11 changes to his side at the break, and they also wasted no time in adding to the scoreline, with youngster Sam McQueen heading home a Calum Chambers cross for his second goal in as many games.
Mayuka & Gallagher
An own-goal made it four, before Billy Sharp's shot hit an arm inside the area and Emmanuel Mayuka, who spent last season on-loan at French side FC Sochaux, converted from the spot to make it five.
Teenage striker Sam Gallagher also got in on the act towards the end, finishing well past Dylan Swinnen in the home goal with three minutes to play, making it 6-0 to the visitors in what was a light workout to add game time to the fitness training undertaken abroad.
Southampton will now return to England where they will face Swindon Town on Monday night before a match with somewhat local rivals AFC Bournemouth on Friday night as they step up their preparations ahead of the new season.
