Despite there being no football for Crystal Palace fans to watch at the moment, Eagles fans were reminded of an incredible game from five years ago.
Yannick Bolasie scored goals two, three and four, making Sunderland’s chances at winning the match near impossible.
When Palace posted footage of the goals on Twitter, fans couldn’t help but praise Bolasie. They would love to see the player return to Selhurst Park, especially if he were to pop up with moments like these in the future.
Bolasie was such a baller man ?

Well worth the trip on the coach up there and back, great day. Bolasie’s face was fantastic.

What do we think?
The match could have gone much differently if not for the brilliant impact of Bolasie. Sunderland had 54% of the possession in this match, recording 12 shots.
Interestingly, Sunderland’s goal in this game was scored by Connor Wickham and assisted by Patrick van Aanholt. Both players now, of course, play for Crystal Palace.
