Darwin Nunez, a striker for Liverpool, scored four goals for the team in their 5-0 preseason victory over RB Leipzig on Thursday night.
In the eighth minute, Mohamed Salah gave the Reds the lead, then Nunez extended their advantage in the 48th minute by converting a penalty.
Three minutes later, Nunez scored his second goal of the evening. Harvey Elliott then assisted Nunez in completing his hat trick.
As the game came to a close, the Uruguayan scored his fourth goal thanks to an outstanding individual effort by Fabio Carvalho.
Everyone was looking for him [in the dressing room after the game] and I believe they are all really thrilled for him. Joel Matip, a defender for Liverpool, said of Nunez following the game.
“I think it will be incredibly difficult for our opponents,” said the commenter, “amazing finish, excellent pace, and the work he always put in.”
