Up until now Payet has been one of the stars of the show at the European Championships, scoring a humdinger against Romania in the opening match before again finding the net late on against Albania.
This time it was Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann who took the headlines with a second-half brace, but Payet will be hoping to make the difference in the quarter-final against either England or Iceland with the trophy coming into view.
Payet scored 12 goals and provided 15 assists for West Ham last season, proving to be one of the signings of the summer.
He will be hoping to do the same with the Hammers moving into the Olympic Stadium for the new campaign yet for now his focus will be solely on Euro 2016.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what fans thought of the West Ham star’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
