When the Hattrick is Legendary

Football has also extended the term, with a “perfect hat-trick” being when a player scores one right-footed goal, one left-footed goal and one headed goal within one match.

In Germany and Austria, the term (lupenreiner) Hattrick (“flawless hat-trick”) refers to when a player scores three goals in a row in one half without the half-time break or a goal scored by another player interrupting the performance. In the Netherlands, this is known as a “zuivere hattrick” (“pure hat-trick”).
