WATCH: Netherlands ace Cody Gakpo scores lovely goal vs Qatar, makes FIFA World Cup history

November 29, 2022 By Ali M.
The Dutch attacker scored for a third consecutive game, setting a brilliant FIFA World Cup record along the way.

Cody Gakpo's FIFA World Cup campaign continues to get better!

The Dutch ace took to the pitch once again as the Netherlands locked horns with Qatar in their third and final group stage fixture. The European heavyweights entered this clash knowing that a victory against the host nation would win them the group and thus named a strong lineup.

To no one's surprise, Gakpo started and was partnered with Memphis Depay. Given that the PSV ace had already scored in each of their first two games, there was no extra pressure for him to impress on Tuesday, but the talented attacker delivered nonetheless. 

After only 26 minutes of play, the 23-year-old continued his brilliant goalscoring form and broke the deadlock for his country, netting a lovely goal past the Qatari goalkeeper. This was a right-footed effort, thus completing a perfect hat-trick as his first two were scored with his head and weaker left foot. Check out his goal versus Al-Annabi in the clips below (videos are geo-restricted).

And just like that, Gakpo made FIFA World Cup history. Never before had a Dutch player scored in each of his first three games in this competition but Cody has brought that to an end. Additionally, he joins an illustrious list of Netherlands players to score in three consecutive World Cup matches.

The Eredivisie ace was linked with a Premier League transfer but that never materialized over the summer. However, given his form at Qatar 2022, Gakpo might just get a big move in January.

Manchester United are reportedly leading the race for the 23-year-old as the Red Devils are in desperate need of a forward after the termination of Cristiano Ronaldo's contract. Unfortunately for the Premier League giants, Cody's exploits in the Middle East are only adding to his valuation.
