List of Italy national football team hat-tricks

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Paolo Rossi scored a hat-trick in the 3–2 victory against Brazil in the 1982 FIFA World Cup.

Since Italy's first international association football match in 1910, 26 footballers have scored a hat-trick for the national team – if unofficial matches are included, ones that are not recognized by FIFA, the total is 33.

The first player to score a hat-trick was Pietro Lana in the 6–2 victory against France on 15 May 1910.[1] The most individual goals scored in a single match is four, which has been achieved by six players: Carlo Biagi, Francesco Pernigo, Omar Sívori, Alberto Orlando, Luigi Riva, and Roberto Bettega. Five players have scored a hat-trick more than once: Giuseppe Meazza, Angelo Schiavio, Silvio Piola, Luigi Riva and Paolo Rossi. The highest number of hat-tricks in a single match occurred during the third place contest of the 1928 Summer Olympics in Italy's 11–3 victory over Egypt when Angelo Schiavio, Elvio Banchero and Mario Magnozzi each scored three goals.[2] Luigi Riva with three hat-tricks has scored the highest number of hat-tricks for Italy.

In the 1982 FIFA World Cup match against Brazil, Paolo Rossi scored a hat-trick, considered one of the most famous of all time.[3][4] The most recent hat-trick in an official match was by Alberto Gilardino in Italy's victory over Cyprus on 14 October 2009, during the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification.

Italy have conceded nine hat-tricks since 1912. The first conceded by Italy was scored by Eugène Maës in a 3–4 defeat by France on 17 March 1912. The last was scored by Safet Sušić during the 4–1 defeat by Yugoslavia in a friendly match on 13 June 1979. John Hansen is the only player to have scored four goals against Italy in a 4–1 defeat by Denmark.[5]
