Hakim Ziyech drew attention to himself on Saturday during a Chelsea exhibition game.

The former Ajax player guided his team to a 6-1 victory over Peterborough United, which plays at the second English level with a hat trick.

Joshua Zirkzee was unable to help Bayern Munich to a victory in the debut of trainer Julian Nagelsmann despite a goal.

As a substitute, Ziyech scored three times in the second half of the match played at Chelsea's training ground.

At halftime it was 2-1, after Chelsea had fallen behind early.

In addition to Ziyech, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and former Vitessenaar Armando Broja also scored.

In one of Ziyech's goals, nineteen-year-old Broja also provided the assist.

His hat-trick is a boost for 28-year-old Ziyech, who has had a difficult first season at Chelsea, which won the Champions League.

Under manager Thomas Tuchel, the playmaker mainly had to make do with substitutions.

In all competitions - the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup - Ziyech made 39 appearances last season, scoring six goals and providing four assists.

For Chelsea, the new season starts on August 11 with a match against Europa League winner Villarreal in the battle for the European Super Cup.

The first league game is on August 14, when Crystal Palace comes to Stamford Bridge.

Zirkzee scores on Nagelsmann's debut

In Germany, Bayern Munich lost their first game under Nagelsmann despite a goal from Zirkzee.

The successor of Hansi Flick, who is now the national coach of Germany, saw his team lose 3-2 to 1. FC Köln in Villingen-Schwenningen.

Köln barely managed to maintain its position in the Bundesliga last season.

In front of about six thousand spectators, Armindo Sieb and Zirkzee scored the goals for Bayern in the first half.

Zirkzee played last season, from February, on a rental basis for the Italian club Parma.

Mark Uth, former attacker of Heracles Almelo and sc Heerenveen, scored twice for Köln.

Nagelsmann did not yet have access to his Polish top scorer Robert Lewandowski.

The German and French internationals, who participated in the past European Championship, were also missing.

Bayern and Köln, together with telephone provider Deutsche Telekom, donated an amount of 100,000 euros for the victims of the flood disaster in Germany.
