Who is the 19-year-old midfielder who scored a poker for Villarreal?

The last two midfield Golden Boy winners Joao Felix and Pedri never scored four goals in a match in their impressive careers. Actually, the Barca star showered with superlatives scored only four La Liga goals in his career. Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe had only one four-goal scoring game in their careers each. Illustrating how crazy was the performance that Villarreal's winger Yeremy Pino had in the 5:1 win over Espanyol.


The 19-year-old Pino managed to get four goals in this La Liga game! He scored a hat-trick in the first half! Not just any hat-trick too, a perfect one. Meaning he scored a goal with his right foot, a goal with his left, and a header! All in the first 45 minutes!


The 172 centimetres tall players scored the opener in the 14th minute with a header. Six minutes later he scored with his right foot after a conundrum in the box. His last goal of the first half came from the left flank where he picked up a save from the Espanyol keeper.


Finishing off the game with a 53rd-minute counter-attack action that saw him dribble past the keeper to slot it home.


The Las Palmas native spoke with the media with the match-ball underneath his arms. Ready to take it home to a special place. He became the first player of the Yellow Submarine to score four goals in the league!


With his deal running until 2027 and a release clause of €80,000,000, Unai Emery's team has a golden hen.


"He is competitive and brave and he showed it from the first day. Sometimes he gets frustrated and that makes him feel a little worse, but the rage always comes out," stated Emery.


Overall, Pino has already played 70 professional games, all for Villarreal, scoring 14 times and making five assists.
