The best FA Cup hat trick scored by a Tottenham Hotspur striker

15 years ago today the greatest FA Cup hat trick was scored by Tottenham Hotspur cult legend Ronny Rosenthal.

The Israeli striker signed for Spurs from Liverpool in 1994 and it is fair to say that Rosenthal didn’t have too many nights to remember beyond this magical night at the Dell.

Spurs were away to Southampton and after a shocking start, the superstar striker Ronny Rosenthal let fly with 3 hammer shots.

Southampton were 2-0 up when Ronny hit his first.  He then went on to get a couple more with beautiful left foot strikes past the powerless Bruce Grobbelaar.  A hat trick that won him cult status at The Lane.

Gerry Francis was impressed.

I have never seen such an emphatic hat trick

  1. I disagree I think the best FA Cup hat-trick was scored by Alan Gilzean against Burnley in our 4-3 victory, Willie Irvine scored a hat-trick for Burnley in the same game
