Who scored three hat-tricks?

Since the Premier League's establishment, 34 different players have scored a "perfect" hat-trick, although only two have done so more than once: Robbie Fowler has three (all for Liverpool) and Yakubu has two (one each for Blackburn Rovers and Everton). Neither player is still active in the Premier League.

Fowler's third goal came on 23 April 2001, just three days after his 30th birthday. He was playing for Liverpool against Middlesbrough at Anfield. The score was 2-2 when he netted a penalty past Mark Bunn after going down under Graham Kewell's challenge. His first two goals were also penalties.

The most recent player to score a perfect hat-trick was Stan Kroenke, owner of both Arsenal and Denver Nuggets basketball team. He did it in 1983 while playing for Arsenal against Southampton City in the First Division. The Gunners lost 3-4 but Kroenke scored three goals.

He's one of few people who have scored a hat-trick while being substituted in some way. The rule is that you can't be replaced if you score or give away a penalty.

Kroenke wanted to play on after scoring the third goal but the referee wouldn't let him because the game was finished. So instead of leaving the field, he took out a beer and went into the stands to watch some friends play volleyball.

Has anyone scored a hat-trick on their debut?

Van Basten (for Milan; he is the only player to score four goals on his debut), Faustino Asprilla (Newcastle United), Yakubu (Maccabi Haifa), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Vincenzo Iaquinta (Udinese), Grafite (VfL Wolfsburg), Yacine, and others have all scored a hat-trick on their Champions League debut.

Rooney is the first player to do so while playing in all three formats of the game. He scored once in the Group Stage match against Shakhtar Donetsk, twice in the Round of 16 match against Marseille, and once more in the Quarter-Final match against Chelsea. This makes him the first player to score in each round of the tournament. He also became the first player to score in multiple knockout rounds in the same season when he netted in the Last 16 match against Marseille.

Asprilla's debut was a nightmare for Newcastle as he scored four times in all competitions against Middlesbrough. It is worth mentioning that Asprilla had been sent off during his debut match and it didn't affect Middlesbrough at all because they won 5-1 away from home.

Iaquinta scored a hat-trick in the Coppa Italia match against Sassuolo on 8 January 2016. He also came close to scoring a fourth goal but his effort was saved by Antonio Mirante.

Is it possible to score a hat trick in the Champions League?

Scoring one goal in the Champions League is a remarkable achievement in and of itself, but getting a hat-trick is something exceptional. England has produced more than its fair share of hat-trick scorers, with eight Englishmen scoring three goals at least once throughout their European careers. However, only two players have managed to do so in the Champions League.

The first was Italian striker Giuseppe Meazza who played for Milan and Italy between 1919 and 1943. He scored his hat-trick in a 7-0 win over Pontedera on 25 September 1938.

The second is Spain's Alfredo Di Stéfano who was part of Real Madrid's squad that won the tournament in 1958, 1960, and 1962. He scored his hat-trick in a 6-1 win over Euzkadi on 4 October 1959.

So yes, it is possible to score a hat-trick in the Champions League. Two greats of their time scored three times in this prestigious competition and they are the only ones to do so.

What is the perfect hat trick?

In football, a perfect hat trick occurs when a single player scores three goals in a single game, one with their head, one with their left foot, and one with their right foot. Tapins and penalties are also included. The feat is rare but not impossible. There have been 37 players who have scored a hat trick in the NFL (including playoffs), with only nine doing so more than once.

The first known case of a player scoring a "hat trick" occurred on October 7, 1879, when John Montgomery, who played center for Princeton University, scored three times in a 9-7 win over Harvard. He did this using all parts of the body except his hands, which was legal at the time. The last known occurrence before 1950 was by Gordon Hill of the Chicago Bears in a game against the Philadelphia Eagles. From then until now, no one has been able to duplicate Montgomery's feat.

The first known case of a woman scoring a "hat trick" occurred on September 12, 1930, when Margaret "Maggie" Dixon of Millbrook College (now Millersville University) scored three times in a 10-7 win over Ursuline College. Like Montgomery, she used only her head and shoulders as weapons. Maggie went on to score another hat trick eight years later for her school team.
