Frenchman Yaya Sanogo opened his Arsenal goal-scoring account in the Emirates Cup against Benfica with a cool finish. 

Then he went on to score a first-half hat-trick. 

On his first, Sanogo connected on an Aaron Ramsey cross to give the hosts the lead. 

His celebration was, err, something.

Sanogo got his brace when he was perfectly set up by Joel Campbell, who scored Arsenal's second.

His third strike came right at the stroke of half-time, capitalising on a loose ball to put it into Benfica's net. 

For good measure, he added a fourth goal early in the second half.
