Alanyspor were coming off the back of scoring seven and five goals in their previous two matches and Cisse guided them to another good win against Konyaspor.

Cisse was his team's single-handed attacking force, recording 16 touches in the box and hitting a Cristiano Ronaldo-level 11 shots on goal.

He brought his side back on level terms on the 35th minute after they had fallen behind, taking advantage of Steven Caulker's knockdown, but all his efforts looked to have been in vain as the hosts recorded 24 shots on goal.

But in injury time Cisse drifted in between defenders to glance his header into the corner and secure the win, cueing dramatic celebrations from players, substitutes and coaches.

Cisse has 12 goals in 15 Super Lig appearances this season and even at the age of 34 he is proving to be still potent in front of goal.
