Fredy Montero scores hat trick in league opener with Sporting Lisbon

Sounders FC forward Fredy Montero scored an amazing hat trick in his first league game on loan with Portugal’s Sporting Lisbon, a 5-1 win over FC Arouca.

The third goal is absolutely ridiculous.

Montero did score a hat trick once with Seattle in a 6-2 road win against Chivas USA on Aug. 25, 2012.

If you’re wondering if Colombian national team coach Jose Pekerman is paying attention, he is. He noted in this story that Montero is an excellent forward and applauded the move to Sporting.

Sounders GM Adrian Hanauer explained earlier that while Montero’s move is officially a loan, it is being treated like a transfer for all practical purposes. I don’t know if certain performance clauses are in place that would affect the eventual sale price.
