Rome (AFP) – Gonzalo Higuain hit a hat-trick in Napoli’s final game of the season to beat a 66-year-old record for the number of goals scored in a single Serie A season.
Argentina striker Higuain went into the final game against Frosinone two goals short of equalling Gunnar Nordahl’s 1950 record of 35 goals in a 20-team, three-points-for-a-win Serie A campaign.
But after Napoli captain Marek Hamsik gave the hosts a 44th minute lead, Higuain hit the net three times to take the score to 4-0 in the 72nd minute and take his tally to 36.
