You might be wondering what happens when two or more players score a hattrick in a single game, in that instance who takes the ball at the end of the match. In football when a player scores a hattrick, he usually takes the ball, and when there are two or more what happens?.
Well, there are several answers to this question but the best-case scenario is that players with a hat-trick take a ball each since there are multiple balls used in a football match. Also, people believe the player who scores the first hattrick takes the ball, well that depends on league preferences or if only a ball should be awarded.
According to a post-sighted on footballhandbook, it’s believed that a hattrick serves as a memento of great achievement and it’s a tradition for players to get a match ball if three goals are scored by an individual and there are no official rules regarding it hence If there are two players from the same team or opposite teams, both should be able to bring a ball home.
A typical example is Neymar and Kylian Mbappe who had a hat-trick and an assist each on Saturday against Clermont Foot 63 in the French Ligue 1. Both were able to pick a ball each. On that note players with three assists in a single game receive nothing.
