Ivan Ignatiev scored a hat-trick in 11 minutes! What is it with him?
Even Khudyakov gave an assist.
In Moscow, Lokomotiv hosts Orenburg. And the contender for the best player of the meeting became known already in the 12th minute. Lokomotiv forward Ivan Ignatiev seems ready to revive his career: in the sixth match for the railway workers, the striker scored three goals in 11 minutes. The 23-year-old striker opened the scoring against Orenburg in the eighth minute. Ignatiev picked up the ball, burst into the penalty area and shot low into the far corner – 1:0.
Four minutes have passed – and there is the first double for Lokomotiv! Anton Miranchuk made a counter pass, Nair Tiknizyan ran down the flank and shot into the goalkeeper’s area, and Ivan Ignatiev sent the ball into the net – 2:0.
A minute after the second goal of Ivan Ignatiev, Vladimir Sychevoi scored against Orenburg (the author of the hat-trick of the meeting with Ural), and a little later, the Lokomotiv forward took advantage of a long graceful pass by Daniil Khudyakov and scored a hat-trick.
Ignatiev scored the first hat-trick in the Russian Premier League. He scored the same number of goals in the previous 36 matches of the Russian championship. The forward not only became the second football player of this season to score a hat-trick, but also entered the history of Lokomotiv – he became the first railroad player since 2006 to score a hat-trick in an RPL match, when Dmitry Loskov scored four goals for Rubin. These are miracles! Do you believe that Ignatiev will finish poker in the second half?
