19-Year Old João Félix Scores Stunning Hat-trick Vs Frankfurt
It was the Joao Felix show at the Estadio da Luz as Benfica inflicting a 4-1 thumping on Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League quarter final first leg.
In a wonderful 54 minutes, the 19-year old wonderkid bagged a stunning hat-trick and laid on an assist for the other goal as Benfica blitzed 10-man Frankfurt.
Felix’s second goal was a rasping drive that was too hot for Kevin Trapp to handle and when he completed his hat-trick just before the hour mark, the youngster was reduced to tears. It meant so much to him.
Prior to tonight’s game, Felix had never even scored a European goal but after his heroics in Lisbon, he is now the youngest player to score a hat-trick in the Europa League.
You only have to look at his masterclass tonight to begin to understand why so many of Europe’s top clubs are chasing him.
He already has a huge admirer in Jose Mourinho, who has gone on record to say that Felix “can play for any club in the world.”
Remember the name. This kid is different gravy.
