Nigeria international, Josh Maja scored three times last night as Bordeaux thrashed Nimes 6-0 at the Stade Matmut Atlantique.

The hat-trick was his first, as he became the fourth Nigerian player to score three or more goals in the French top-flight in the last fifty years, after Peter Odemwingie, John Utaka (3 times) and Victor Agali.

Maja scored in the 24th minute beating an offside trap to open the floodgate of goals and doubled his goals in the 37th minute.

He then made it 3-0 in the 53rd minute.
