A goalscoring record which has been held since the 1949-1950 season was finally broken over the weekend by Napoli’s Gonzalo HIGUAIN.
Gunnar NORDAHL’s record 35 goals in a single Serie A season was broken as HIGUAIN netted a hattrick in the last league match of the season. HIGUAIN entered Saturday’s match against Frosinone on 33 goals, knowing that a double will tie the record and only a hattrick would break it.
And just as he’s done all season long for his club, HIGUAIN delivered and in spectacular fashion. HIGUAIN scored a hattrick (his third an overhead/side volley) as he finishes his season with 36 goals in 35 matches.
Here are highlight’s from Napoli’s 4-0 win against Frosinone.
HIGUAIN’s third goal in full with celebrations:
