Colombia international winger Jonathan Copete bagged a hat-trick to fire Brazilian football club Santos FC to a 3-2 victory over Sao Paulo in Serie A championship.
The 29-year-old put the hosts ahead with a close-range strike just before half-time during Sunday’s game and added a second goal with a header shortly after the restart, reports Xinhua news agency.
He appeared to guarantee Santos victory with his third goal just after the hour mark, but the visitors netted twice in quick succession through Shaylon and Robert Arboleda. Virat Kohli Overcomes Bouncer Challenge To Register A Record Breaking Ton
