Shane Robinson scores hat-trick for FC Haka
Former Shamrock Rovers midfielder Shane Robinson scored a hat-trick to help FC Haka to a 3-1 win over JJK in the Finnish Veikkausliiga.
Waterford-born Robinson, 31, is a fan favourite at Tehtaan kenttä after scoring seven times last year and winning the club’s Player of the Year award. Robinson moved to Finland to work with Sami Ristilä, who he had played alongside at Drogheda United in their eircom League winning season in 2007. Robinson plays alongside Shane McFaul in the Haka midfield, after the Dubliner joined in December from St. Patrick’s Athletic.
In this afternoon’s game, Robinson score all three of Haka’s goals against JJK Jyvaskala, with the first coming from the spot. Robinson now has 5 goals in 13 league games this season as Haka sit in 10th place. “I do not remember ever scoring three goals in one game,” Robinson told Finland’s MTV3. “Maybe as a boy, but I can’t remember, it would have been a long time ago.”
