Real Madrid’s Kosovare Asllani scored the third-fastest hat-trick in soccer history on Saturday, finding the net three times in 154 seconds. Her fantastic day led the club to a 3-1 Primera Iberdrola win over Valencia.

The Sweden international scored her first goal on a free-kick in the 67th minute and followed it up with her second less than a minute later. She won the ball just outside of the box and lobbed the keeper with her best finish of the day. It was a filthy third touch that left the goalie in no-man’s land. Asllani completed her hat trick in the 70th minute.

Her hat trick ranks third all-time for both men’s and women’s competition. Magnus Arvidsson holds the record, scoring three goals in 89 seconds during a Swedish second-tier match in 1995. Tommy Ross is second, netting the hat trick in 90 seconds back in 1964.

Asllani’s scoring prowess helped Real Madrid add crucial points with the win, sitting second in the Primera Iberdrola table. Rivals Barcelona are in first, eight points ahead of Asllani and company.
