Watch: Dimitri Payet scores perfect free-kick for Marseille

Jack O'Toole

Marseille winger Dimitri Payet scored a textbook free-kick in the Les Olympiens 9-0 thrashing of Bourg-en-Bresse Peronnas in the Coupe de France round of 16 on Tuesday.

The former West Ham United midfielder converted a free-kick from the edge of the box curling the ball up over the wall and leaving goalkeeper Sébastien Callamand with no chance.

Payet converted after midfielder Luiz Gustavo opened the scoring on 10 minutes, before successive hat-tricks from Argentine underage international Lucas Ocampos and Greek striker Konstantinos Mitroglou wrapped up a convincing win for Marseille.

Forward Clinton N’Jie added a late penalty to make it 9-0 for the visitors as Marseille advanced to the quarter-final.

Elsewhere former Marseille defender Patrice Evra has signed a short-term contract with West Ham United.

The 36-year-old left Marseille by mutual consent in November after he was banned from Uefa competition for the rest of the season for kicking one of his own fans.
