Will there be a hattrick netted at Euro 2016? There have been eight hat tricks scored throughout the history of the European Championships and Spain’s David Villa was the last one to accomplish the feat back at Euro 2008, so not too long ago.
Interestingly, back in 1984 when France were last hosts of the tournament, one Frenchman netted two hat tricks in the tournament.
That was Michel Platini who helped Les Bleus win their first ever European crown, that win coming on home soil. Will they repeat that back on home soil in 2016? This time France have Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud who could deliver the goods in netting a hattrick.
There are some big forward players turning up at Euro 2016, the likes of Harry Kane, Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller and Cristiano Ronaldo scratching the surface of a very deep top scorer market.
Ladbrokes have a big promotion running for because if you open an account with them then you can take a special 5/1 price on there being a hattrick scored by anyone during Euro 2016! This is a tremendously big price boost and in a wide open tournament, without a stand-out defence anywhere in sight, it could well pay off!
