(Video) Crystal Palace star Benteke scores hat-trick for Belgium

Crystal Palace star Christian Benteke scored a hat-trick for Belgium in their 5-0 victory over Gibraltar.

Bennett’s third goal involved a cheeky back-heel flick which beat both the keeper and the defender next to him.

Benteke opened the scoring inside seven seconds in what was the fastest ever goal for Belgium and set a new record for earliest goal scored in a World Cup qualification match.

The Belgium international star now has a total of 10 goals in all competitions since making his debut in May 2010 under the management of Georges Leekens.

Benteke joined Palace on a big money move from Liverpool over the summer and has three goals in seven appearances for the London based outfit.
