Didier Drogba rolled back the years last night by scoring a hat-trick for Montreal Impact.
The Chelsea legend, 38, was the star of the show as he helped the Impact demolish Philadelphia Union 5-1.
It was his second hat-trick since he arrived in the MLS and he’s probably never scored an easier one. Scroll down the page to watch Drogba’s goals.

The former Premier League star netted two in the first half - both of which were as close as you’ll get to open goals - while he produced a cool finish to complete his hat-trick in the 51st minute.
The win lifts the Impact to third in the Eastern Conference and takes Drogba’s tally for the season to eight goals in 12 appearances.
Anything Drogba can do, Giovinco can do better
The MLS witnessed another hat-trick last night. Sebastian Giovinco scored three goals, including two fine free-kicks, as Toronto FC beat DC United 4-1.
No doubt Chelsea fans will be delighted to see their former star, the club’s fourth all-time top scorer, continuing to produce the goods.
The striker dedicated his goals to his family afterwards, including his aunt, who recently passed away, as well as a young fan suffering from a brain tumour.
“It’s been few tuff (sic) weeks recently and I want to dedicate my goals to my aunt who passed away and to my family,” he wrote on Instagram.
“To my mum, no words will ever be enough to describe how much I love you. Stay strong, I'm with you!!!!
"I also dedicate these goals to Finley this little kid 14 years old fighting a brain tumor and his family.”
