Nigerian forward Ademola Lookman continues to receive accolades following his outstanding performance in the UEFA Europa League final. UEFA paid tribute to Lookman and other players who scored hat-tricks during the 2023/24 season on social media.

Lookman’s Hat-Trick Seals Europa League Title

Lookman delivered a remarkable hat-trick in the Europa League final, leading Atalanta to a dominant victory over Bayer Leverkusen. This triumph secured Atalanta’s first-ever European title and their first major honor since 1963. Lookman’s performance made him one of only five players to score a hat-trick in the 2023/24 Europa League campaign, and only the second to do so in the knockout rounds.

Europa League Celebrates Lookman

UEFA Europa League honored the Nigerian international and other hat-trick heroes in a series of posts on social media platform X. Alongside Lookman, former Arsenal and Barcelona forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was recognized for his treble against Ajax, along with Michael Gregoritsch, Vincenzo Grifo, and Benjamin Bourigeaud.

Lookman’s extraordinary achievement highlights his excellence in front of goal and cements his place among the top performers of the competition.
