Opinion: Why Patson Daka Could Become Africa's Best Player In Premier League.

24 year-old Leicester city's Patson Daka is the first Zambian to score in the Premier League and also the first Zambian to score a hattrick in a major European tournament, he has now scored 5 goals in 2 games. He holds the record for the fastest hattrick in both the Austrian Bundesliga (11 minutes) and the Europa League (9 minutes). He is a prolific goalscorer and has what it takes to become Africa's best player in the English league.

It was a magnificent performance from the Zambian, scoring four incredible goals to help boost Leicester's hopes for Europa League qualification from the group stage. Only five players have scored 4 (or more) goals in an Europa League game since the change in format in 2009, Aritz Aduriz (5), Radamel Falcao (4), Edinson Cavani (4), Willian José (4) and Patson Daka (4), only Willian José and Daka have done it away from home. 

Patson Daka is an example of a warrior, he was not getting enough opportunities under Brendan Rodgers, but he was patient enough to wait for his chance and as soon as he got the opportunity, he seized it and announced himself to the world.
