It will just happen to you, score three goals in one match. New Zealander Michaela Moore “grabbed it” on Sunday in the international match against the United States (5-0). A little consolation for the unlucky person who made history: She’s not the only one who’s been cheated into three copies on a football field.




Martin Palermo

What’s worse, scoring three own goals or missing three penalty kicks? Like Moore, Martin Palermo voluntarily made football history. The Argentine managed to miss three penalty kicks during the 1999 Copa America against Colombia. He grabbed them all in normal time from a match in which Argentina lost 3-0. Palermo entered the Guinness Book of Records.

Mario Gomez

Talk about records. It turns out that former German international Mario Gomez was the intimidating shooter at the age of 34 for FC Stuttgart in the second Bundesliga. On December 1, 2019, he scored three goals against Sandhausen and each goal was more beautiful than the next. It is unfortunate for the striker that the party was canceled three times. The VAR discovered in all his strikes that Gomez was offside just a few centimeters away. Stuttgart also lost 2-1.

Robert Moren

Gomez thought he made history, but even that wasn’t possible for the Germans. He must share his record with Robert Morin, who preceded him earlier that year, on August 23, 2019, as a player at Campore. Against his former club NAC, in which he has not topped a goal in 14 matches, he scored the top scorer three times. But it turned out once again that Maureen and Breda were not a good combination, because all his goals were impermissible. And of course NAC won 1-0 that evening.

Josep Simonic

Twice yellow red. However? Not for Josep Simonec. The hard-learned Croatian played at the 2006 World Cup to earn a yellow card against Australia no less than three times. It wasn’t too bright for the defender who slipped off the red after his second card thanks to inattentive referee Graham Ball, but had to leave the field after his number three card.

Simunic set a record with it. Incidentally, Judgment Graham’s poll. For the Englishman, his fatal mistake meant the end of his international career.

Sven van Beek

Listed as a result of your own goals, you always end up with Sven van Beek. After all, the 27-year-old defender is the absolute record holder in the Eredivisie with no fewer than eight goals. No, he didn’t make three in one match. But Sven van Beek was Schlemel on behalf of three different clubs. As a Feyenoord player, he passed his goalkeeper six times, but also scored an own goal for Willem II and Heerenveen.
