A hat-trick in soccer is when a player scores three goals in a single game. Goals in a penalty shootout are excluded.

Players achieving hat tricks are usually rewarded by being given the match ball to keep. The fastest time to score a hat trick is 90 seconds, by Tommy Ross.The only hat trick scored in the FIFA World Cup Final was by Geoff Hurst playing for England in the 1966 final.
