Khelifa had all but sealed the match with his first in the 56th minute, following goals from Kévin Bérigaud and Mohammed Rabiu.

But Khelifa rounded the match off in style in the 87th minute

After a Nice corner was repelled by Evian, the ball fell to the 26-year-old striker midway through his own half.

Khelifa then rolled his way past Grégoire Puel and spotted Nice goalkeeper David Ospina was way off his line.

With an easy yet powerful swing of his right boot, Khelifa launched the ball some 65 yards over Ospina's head and into the corner of the goal.

"To score such a goal is a dream! I have no words. This is the first time I have scored this way," Khelifa said after the match.
