Lucas Moura recalls career hat-tricks
Spurs forward Lucas Moura scored one of the most famous hat-tricks in the club’s history in last year’s Champions League semi-final in Amsterdam.
With Spurs needing three goals in 45 minutes to qualify for the final, the Brazilian stepped up with a treble, but it’s not the only one the Brazilian has scored.
In an interview with the Spurs website, he recalled bagging a treble for Brazil U-20s back in 2011- a game that saw Neymar score twice.
“I scored my first hat-trick in the youth national team, in the final of the South American Championship – it was so good!” he reminisced.
“I was 18 years old, we won 6-0 against Uruguay and it was an unbelievable day for me – I will never forget it. Good memories!”
Moura’s first professional hat-trick came for São Paulo against Sport Recife in 2013. “I remember, it was against Sport (Recife), the first goal was very, very nice”
“For the second one, the keeper made a mistake and gave the ball to me and I scored, and the third one I just received a good pass from my team-mate and I made a good finish. It was my first hat-trick in São Paulo, another proud moment for me.”
