There's scoring a hat-trick, and then there's what Darwin Quintero did.

The Columbian, Minnesota United's first-ever designated player who signed in March, has already gone some way to repaying the club's investment with a stunning treble at TCF Bank Stadium on Wednesday.

His hat-trick, the first in the Loons' fledgling Major League Soccer history, helped United to a 4-3 over Toronto.

He struck once in the first half and twice in the second, adding to Miguel Ibarra's 13th minute strike.

And just take a look at these goals – these weren't your everyday tap-ins, these were spectacular, the first an outside the boot curler to the top left hand corner, followed up by two delicate chips over the stranded Toronto 'keeper.
