Liverpool’s Harry Wilson pulled off an outrageous hat-trick with three Cardiff City narcotics
Harry Wilson threw a truly outrageous hat-trick for Cardiff City this weekend.
The Liverpool youngster is currently on loan in the Welsh capital after also gaining experience away from Anfield with Crewe Alexandra, Hull City, Derby County and Bournemouth.
So far Loans have garnered just two senior appearances for the Reds, but don’t be fooled that Wilson has shown the kind of class you expect from a Liverpool player at times.
Wilson’s penchant for miracle goals
And if Wilson knows one way to get fans’ attention, it’s through mind-blowing goals, because let’s just say the Welshman isn’t interested in tap-ins and rambling finishes.
On the contrary, having essentially created his own Goal of the Season competition in Derby and scored a series of stunners with Bournemouth, Wilson caught attention with a series of words.
However, we’re inclined to think Wilson outdid himself by producing one of the greatest hat tricks we’ve ever seen in Cardiff’s 4-0 win at Birmingham City.
Wilson’s Amazing Hat Trick
Ok, sure, that doesn’t put a glove on Rivaldo’s majestic hat-trick against Valencia for Barcelona, but with a lavish lob and two free kicks at St. Andrew’s it was still pretty special.
Wilson’s opening strike was the dictionary definition of ‘top corner’, his second goal was a well-stopped finish in the bottom corner and the triple seal goal was pure ‘Bend it like Beckham’.
For our money, the opening and closing strikes are what make the highs particularly stunning, but be sure to check out the treble in all its glory below:
Goals at 0:22, 0:42 and 1:42
What a remarkable day of work. Imagine pulling off a hat trick from outside the box.
And Wilson clearly felt smothered by his highs – as he should have been, by the way – even reacting to his masterclass by explaining that he believes he can make the breakthrough at Liverpool.
Angling for his shot in Liverpool
“I feel like I’m good enough to be a part of this team,” Wilson said after his hat-trick, according to BBC Sport. “I would like to think I could go there and add something different.
“My goal has always been to get into the Liverpool squad and play for the club I have been at since I was eight. But you know the quality of Liverpool, the famous first three.
“I’ve always been confident in my abilities and playing with the players on this team I think it would help me in my game.
“But it’s out of my hands. It’s up to the manager there to make those decisions, but I’m completely focused on the end of the season with Cardiff and the Euros with Wales.
“I am determined to have a good tournament there and, if not with Liverpool [next season], I am determined to move. I feel like I deserve to play at the highest level possible. “
Fair play with you, Harry, because if you can master every facet of the game as well as you can achieve spectacular goals, then Liverpool will put down the red carpet for you when you return.
