On the day of his 38th birthday, we relive Christopher Katongo’s stunning hat-trick at Newlands Stadium on 9 September 2007.


The former Jomo Cosmos forward had set the South African top-flight alight before earning a move to Denmark and came back to haunt Bafana Bafana in a 2008 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Cape Town.


Katongo scored three times in the opening 20 minutes to lead Chipolopolo to a famous 3-1 win. The Zambian forward enjoyed a distinguished career and famously spearheaded his country to AFCON glory in 2012.
