Su name began to go around the world when he scored nine goals for Honduras in the 12-0 of the U-20 World Cup (nobody had achieved something like this in any category of the World Cup); in the Champions League he became the third youngest player to make a hat-trick (he went 6-2 to Genk and took 102 seconds) behind Raúl and Rooney (later Rodrygo would overtake him); He has ten goals in the Champions League, one less than Lewandowski, the pichichi (only Fortaine, Mané and Firmino reached that figure in their debut in the European Cup) …The Haaland earthquake It has impressed the soccer planet. “It’s an animal,” Cassano defined him. “In a couple of years will go to a great team for 200 or 300 million; is the strongest of all, “predicted Vieri.” It is a beast, “settled Tuchel, who ‘suffered’ him in the Champions League (he doubled in PSG’s defeat in the first leg of the second round).
