Brighton & Hove Albion registered an emphatic 6-1 win over Swiss outfit Meyrin in Saturday's pre-season friendly in Geneva.
It took the Seagulls just three minutes to open the lead as Tomer Hemed poked home after Sam Baldock beat the opposition goalkeeper to a through-ball and squared the ball over for the Israeli to finish.
Aroid Belladon struck a shock equaliser from a tight angle 12 minutes in, but Rohan Ince restored the visitors' lead from close range following a scramble in the box just before the half-hour mark.
Brighton then turned the screw and were four goals up by the break as Bruno Saltor and Solly March scored on 38 and 40 minutes respectively.
The second half was played at a slower pace, but Chris Hughton's charges added two more before the final whistle through James Tilley and Chris O'Grady to confirm an easy victory for the Championship side.
