Sports Brief takes a look at the players who scored a hat-trick this week alongside Osimhen.

Players who scored hat-tricks this week

1. Victor Osimhen

The Super Eagles striker scored a 46-minute treble in Napoli's win over Sassuolo in the Italian Serie A.

The hat-trick takes the Nigerian international to double figures in the season and five goals since returning from AFCON 2023.

2. Erling Haaland

The former Borussia Dortmund striker achieved another milestone in Manchester City's midweek clash with Luton Town in the FA Cup.

The Norwegian international hits five past Luton, with the hat-trick coming in the first 40 minutes.

3. Jarrod Bowen

The England international got his first Premier League and career hat-trick in West Ham United's win over Brentford on Monday evening.

The 27-year-old winger scored two goals in the first seven minutes of play before adding the third three minutes past the hour mark.

4. Paulo Dybala

The Argentine forward continued his impressive form under new boss Daniele De Rossi as he notched up three goals in AS Roma's 3-2 win over Torino in the Serie A.

Rohr’s advice to Osimhen

Sports Brief also reported that the former Nigeria coach, Gernot Rohr, has advised Osimhen on the ideal club to join when he does leave Napoli.

The Super Eagles striker is a subject of interest from many European clubs but the septuagenarian feels staying in Ligue 1 would suit Osimhen more.
