• Mkhitaryan with historic hat-trick for Armenia.
  • Also chipped in with three assists.
  • Enjoyed his most productive season yet for Dortmund in 2015/16.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan became the first player in the history of the Armenia national team to score a hat-trick in Saturday's 7-1 friendly win over Guatemala in Los Angeles.

The six-time Armenian Footballer of the Year opened his account in the 39th minute to cancel out an early opener from Guatemala's Carlos Luiz, before turning on the style in the second half with a further two goals and three assists.

Mkhitaryan's hat-trick heroics are a continuation of his blistering form throughout the 2015/16 campaign, which saw the Dortmund favourite register a staggering 23 goals and 32 assists in all competitions.

Armenia return to action on 1 June with a friendly against El Salvador in Carson, California.
