You probably heard that Rodrygo made history on Wednesday evening when he pulled off a perfect hat-trick against Galatasary. This was only his second game of Champions League. 18-year-old Rodrygo scored his first with his left foot and then netted his second with his head three minutes later. Then, bagged his third with his right foot and became the second-youngest player who scored a hat trick in the Champions League.
Real Madrid didn’t have much to shout about recently but Rodrygo came as a bright spot. He signed for €45 million this summer which was justified by his five goals in six games for Los Blancos. Besides Rodrygo, there are five more teenagers who now scored hat-tricks in Europe’s elite club competition. Soccer 10 is bringing you the full list.
Rodrygo is not the only teenager with an impressive hat-trick
Second on the list is 19-year-old Yakubu. The Nigerian striker was a decent player for Everton, Middlesbrough and Portsmouth. Before he graced English football, he teamed up with Maccabi Haifa. He scored seven goals in eight games for his side in the 2002/2003 season Champions League. Three of them were against Olympiacos and one in 3-0 win over Man United.
Another 19-year old on this list is Erling Braut Haaland who not so long ago took over the headlines. His hat-trick over Genk last month made him the most coveted youngster in football. He continued with that form, netting 23 times in 17 games this season. Wayne Rooney another great talent who just signed for £30 million from Everton. He showed composure that was beyond his years while he netted first with his left foot. Then, fending off the defender he lashed into the corner from range and completed the hat-trick with a free-kick.
The last one to mention is 18-year-old Raul whose record stood for an impressive 24 years. He made his debut for Los Blancos at 17, tearing apart the Hungarian side Ferencvaros in 1995. On that day, Real Madrid won 6-1 and the pick of the bunch was their superb team goal converted by Raul. Don’t miss out on the following fixtures.
