Scoring against Luxembourg isn't a particularly impressive footballing feat, at least not for players of Romelu Lukaku's calibre. But a hattrick -- against any opposition -- is something to be celebrated, and since we have videos of the feat let's take a gander.

Goal the first:

Well taken, I think. Good ball from Marouane Fellaini and an excellent body feint to draw the keeper out. It's also harder to score from where he did than it looks, even with an empty net.

Goal the second:

Not particularly impressive apart from Eden Hazard being all Eden Hazardy, but at least it went in.

Goal the third:

Now here's the really good stuff. One way then another to dispatch two defenders and then a thumping left-footed shot inside the near post. Not bad at all. Plus, scoring here means that we can post this hilarious miss without feeling bad about it:

Embarrassing misses are far less embarrassing when you score three goals in the same game.
