Nineteen year-old Matthew Hoppe becomes the first American to score a hat trick ever in the Bundesliga.
Hoppe had a great debut against Borussia Mönchengladbach back in late November. Michael Baum decided not to start him again & it looks like that decision cost him his job. New manager Christian Groß has shown faith instantly by starting the 19-year-old in both his games so far. Hoppe has paid him back instantly with this performance that ends FC Schalke’s 30 game winless streak & lifts them off the bottom of the table.
Hoppe showed great composure for all 3 of his goals & he is exactly what Schalke has lacked in the final third this past year………a goalscorer. The future of USMNT‘s looks bright.
