Hi All Soccer Fanatics

Can anyone answer this conundrum.

How can one player - following the rules of association football - score three consecutive goals without any other player touching the ball?

Best regards

Hi Rafael

Look closely and you will see the ball was touched by two players.

Nice clip though.

Hi Rafael

When a goal is scored the other side kick off.

Did I ever tell you about my Left Hand Drive motorbike?

I will start another thread.

The goalkeeper (Mike) can return the ball into play by kicking it without touching the ball, in this way the oposing team can score 3 consecutive times without anyone else’s touching the ball.

Assuming nothing happened to Mike in its way to the game in his two wheel drive motorcycle.

Hi John

Very close.

Did you hear about the Irish goalkeeper - this is appanently true - who made a blinder of a save in a big needle match.

His cap blew off into the back of the net and he went to get it - carrying the ball with him.

Hi Gary

You are very nearly there.

It does involve a centre forward who first scores an own goal.
He kicks off and charges down the field and is brought down in the penalty area and scores from the spot.

Then the whistle blows for half time and when he comes back on it is his turn to kick off and he repeats the charge and penalty routine.

Then the other side kicks off.

Best regards

Player fouled while scoring, ref already blown before ball goes in, player takes penatly, scores, but keeper was moving & ref had blown before ball goes in. Player retakes & scores.
Wouldn’t count as a hat-trick, but would have hit the back of the net three times without another player touching a live ball ...

He certaintly wouldn’t be allowed to take the next center!

I think the centre rule is the player taking the centre isn’t allowed to touck the ball again until another player has done so. -Fairly sure you can have a strike from the centre if you want to.

Another way might be score a goal, get fouled in the pnalty area during the ensuing celebration, take the pen, repeat?

Hi Gary

The centre forward has to pass the ball to another player before a goal can be scored.

I am not sure if this rule applies to own goals scored from the centre spot.

Anyway after the second one he would be called off the pitch.

Score an own goal, take the resulting centre and score an own goal with a single kick, repeat?
