The records date back to the 2001/02 season when Marcelo Salas scored six times in a single match for Al-Ittihad. Since then, only three other players have managed to score five goals in a match: Gordon Banks (England) in 1978/79, Hristo Stoichkov (Bulgaria) in 1989/90 and Ronaldo again in 2015.
The history of hat-tricks dates back to 1884 when the term 'hat-trick' was first used by William McGregor to describe what is now known as a "grand slam". A player who scores 100 points in a match is said to have accomplished something special and won many fans across the world. Only eight people have done this so far: Charles Taylor, James Braid, George Allison, Bobby Charlton, Alan Ball, Gary Speed, Thierry Henry and Luis Suarez.
In England, it is common practice to award someone who has scored a century in an innings style. That means that if a player gets to 100 before time is up, he will be awarded four more balls in the next spell.
