Ghanaian winger, Osman Bukari bagged his first hat-trick for Red Star Belgrade as they hammered Armenian side Pyunik 5-0 on Wednesday night in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League third qualifying round tie.
The Ghanaian player was outstanding and broke the backline of Pyunik with his superb pace following a counterattack, before leaving the goalkeeper dead on the turf and placing the ball in the back of the net.
He then turned provider and assisted Zambian, Kings Kangwa in doubling the lead. The Ghanaian then got his second and Belgrade’s third of the contest just before the stroke of halftime.
In the 70th minute, Osman scored his third goal for the night to make the scoreline 4-0 as Red Star Belgrade dominated the UEFA Champions League qualifier.
Osman Bukari, 23, was replaced six minutes later by countryman Ibrahim Mustapha.
Stefan Mitrovic came off the bench to score the final goal for Red Star Belgrade as they completed the demolition of their Armenian opponents.
The second leg will be played next week with the winner progressing to the play-off stage.
Netizens praised him for his outstanding performance and many feel he would do a great job for the Black Stars in Qatar.
“Oh my…whaaat! Osman Bukari finally got his first hat-trick for his new club ….wohoooo! Qatar,” one Twitter user stated.
Another added, “Oh my goodness — Osman Bukari runs like he’s got some turbo power in his legs…give us the World Cup then”.
