Chelsea-owned Nigerian star scores a professional hat-trick in his Debut match

Chelsea-owned Nigerian youngster Tariq Uwakwe scored a hat-trick in his first professional debut for his loan team Accrington Stanley on Tuesday, in the team's 7-0 victory over Leeds United under 21 in the English Football League (EFL) trophy.

The youngster was on fire for the Reds on his Debut at Wham Stadium on Tuesday evening, as he scored three times and he provided an assist as they defeated Leeds youth team mercilessly.

Tariq Uwakwe joined the English Football League One club yesterday (Monday) from Chelsea on a season-long loan deal, but was thrown straight into the deep end, and the youngster did not disappoint the coach.

Tariq Uwakwe opened the scoring for Accrington Stanley in the 5th minutes with a fine goal, he scored his second goal in the 22nd minutes, and he completed his hat-trick in the 73rd minutes for the team.

The 20-year-old is in line to make his competitive league bow at senior level when Accrington Stanley face Peterborough United this weekend, when the 2020/2021 English League season finally starts after the international break.
