Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko is proud of his first hat-trick in England.

Dzeko is the proud owner of his first matchball having forgotten to make the claim after netting a treble in a match for Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga.

He said: "It was just a fantastic feeling at Spurs and I'm very happy.

"First, we played like a team — and to win 5-1 against Tottenham is unbelievable. Then to score four goals was just amazing.

"I got the ball signed and I will send it home to Bosnia with my other things. This will be my first matchball.

"I scored a hat-trick before but I did not take the ball. I do not know why!"
