Norwich City striker Simeon Jackson smashed a stunning first-half hat-trick in Canada’s 7-0 win over St Lucia on Friday.

The win, which is the biggest in Canada’s history, saw Jackson become only the second Canadian ever to hit a treble in World Cup qualifying, emulating former West Ham striker Alex Banbury.

The Canucks now sit top of their CONCACAF Stage II World Cup 2014 qualifying group with a maximum nine points from three games.

Playing on a converted cricket pitch in St Lucia, Jackson opened the scoring in the 19th minute, with a neat lob over the goalkeeper. Ten minutes later, Jackson, who started on the right side of midfield, made it two after Adam Straith nudged a ball into his path following a corner.

Jackson then completed his hat-trick in the 34th minute making it 4-0 on what was a memorable night for the City man. Braces from Iain Hume and Olivier Occean completed the rout for Canada, who face Puerto Rico next tomorow.

  • Well, it was only St. Lucia but goals are goals. What might it do for Simeon`s confidence? Hartfelt thanks to the Canada manager. Interesting Jackson was operating in midfield. PL misses nothing so no need to advise him!

  • It's good to see him htting the net cgularly,regardless of the game, it can't be a bad thing for Mr Jackson. We have yet to see if he can out-turn a Premiership defence and be the first to the lose ball in the area.

  • Moderators, "Hartfelt" was deliberate. Canada... Manager.... Hart. I am so humble I made the pages of your journal, nevertheless. Carry on Plagiarising. Also encouraging that you recognise the value of Timbo. OTBC.

  • With Vaughan out for a while this could be Jackson's moment.
