Sergino Dest respects that there’s about to be a big holiday in the United States, so naturally he’s feasting.

The Dutch American right back, 19, used an audacious flick on the touch line to help set up Ajax’s second minute goal against Lille as the Amsterdam set looks to take control of its group after Valencia and Chelsea drew in Spain.

Hakim Ziyech is the guy who delivered the finishing touch, but the shot and Dest’s flick were just the book ends of a terrific a team goal.

Donny van de Beek knifes Dest’s pass to Zakaria Labyad, who carries down the right before cutting inside for Dusan Tadic.

The ex-Saints forward lays off for Ziyech’s second goal of the UEFA Champions League campaign. He also has four assists after setting up three goals in the 4-4 thriller at Chelsea.
