24-year old Super Falcons forward, Uchenna Kanu has written her name in the Mexican history books.

The strong and clinical striker netted three times for her new side, Tigres UANL Femenil, to become the first foreigner to score a hattrick in the Mexican Liga MX Femenil.

She opened the scoring in the 34th minute and doubled her tally only a minute later. It then took 15 mins into the second half for Kanu to stamp her name in the history books with the hattrick goal.

Kanu joined the Mexican champions earlier this month and has settled in nicely. She has netted four times in three games since joining.

She is no stranger to big achievements and recognition, as she also has a day dedicated to her in the city of Lakeland, Florida, for her achievements while playing college football in the USA.
