Ismaël Fofana kicked off the 2013/14 UEFA Champions League season in style, hitting a hat-trick as Armenian title holders FC Shirak stunned San Marino's SP Tre Penne 3-0.
The home team were always in control of this first qualifying round opener and could have been ahead inside ten minutes had Dame Diop not missed from the spot following a foul by Francesco Baschetti. Fofana made no mistake 26 minutes later, though, taking receipt of Davit Hakobyan's incisive pass and finishing unerringly beyond visiting goalkeeper Gianmarco Pazzini.
