There have been just six final tournament hat-tricks in the UEFA European Women's Championship. Meet the six, and the individual among them in a league of her own as she went one better.

Lena Videkull (Sweden)

Sweden 4-1 Norway, 1995 semi-final second leg
Hat-trick time: 18 minutes (59, 61, 76)

Sweden's hopes were fading quickly in this last-four tie. Defeated 4-3 in the first leg by the holders, the deficit had been doubled by half-time in Jönköping when Bengt Simonson turned to 32-year-old Videkull on the bench. Ulrika Kalte levelled on the night before the substitute took over, a sensational 18-minute hat-trick sealing a 7-5 aggregate win.

Marianne Pettersen (Norway)

Denmark 0-5 Norway, 1997 group stage 
Hat-trick time: 35 minutes (15, 17, 49, 79)

The inaugural eight-team finals ultimately ended in a premature group stage exit for co-hosts Norway, but Pettersen gave the fans something to remember as she ripped through Denmark. The 22-year-old struck twice in each half in Lillestrøm and remains the only player to score four in a Women's EURO finals match.

Angélique Roujas (France)

Russia 1-3 France, 1997 group stage 
Hat-trick time: 49 minutes (26, 57, 74)

Two days after Pettersen's four-goal salvo, another 22-year-old, Roujas, became the third player to notch a Women's EURO hat-trick. The young forward also found the net in the opening match of the finals, and shared the top scorer prize with Pettersen and Italy's Carolina Morace.

Jodie Taylor (England)

2017 highlights: England 6-0 Scotland

Hat-trick time: 43 minutes (11, 26, 53)

Taylor also won the golden boot, thanks in no small part to her ending a two-decade wait for a hat-trick as England recorded a record finals win. Not bad for the Arsenal forward making her competition debut, qualifying included. "It's quite special," said the 31-year-old. "I need to go and track down that ball and get it signed I think!"

Grace Geyoro (France)

Women's EURO highlights: France 5-1 Italy

France 5-1 Italy, 2022 group stage
Hat-trick time: 37 minutes (9, 40, 45)

A defensive midfielder by trade, Geyoro made the most of a more attacking role as she marked her 50th cap with the first ever Women's EURO hat-trick completed before half-time. "I was just back from injury and wanted to hit the ground running," said the 25-year-old, who was withdrawn midway through the second period.

Beth Mead (England)

England 8-0 Norway, 2022 group stage
Hat-trick times: 48 minutes (34, 38, 81)

The Lionesses were unstoppable in Brighton & Hove as they racked up the biggest ever UEFA Women's EURO finals win, and Mead led the pride with three goals and an assist on her way to finishing as top scorer with a joint-record six. "She showed a real will to score," the Technical Observers said after awarding her Player of the Match.
