On the day of his 20th birthday we look back at Lassina Traore’s five goals in a record-breaking win for Ajax Amsterdam earlier this season.

The Burkina Faso international was the main protagonist in a 13-0 win over VVV Venlo in the Dutch Eredivisie back in October, playing a direct role in eight of the goals, scoring five and assisting three.

The win was Ajax’s biggest ever top-flight victory, surpassing their 12-1 thrashing of Vitesse in May 1972 and is also the biggest win in Eredivisie history to date.

Traore joined Ajax Amsterdam in January 2019 after spending time in Ajax Cape Town’s youth academy.
