It takes a great football player to be able to score three scores in one football match. This has always been a tough issue on the part of football in the world. Many have been able to achieve a lot of hat trick records in their career. Some scored the hat trick as a result of the type of team that they played with.
Sometimes in football, it is very difficult for any player to score a hat trick while battling in a football match with a top club. When it comes to the other clubs, some are able to score more than three goals in a match.
