Patenaude credited with first World Cup hat trick

ZURICH, Switzerland -- It comes 76 years later, but American soccer player Bert Patenaude is finally getting official credit as the first person to score a hat trick in a World Cup match.

Previous records gave Guillermo Stabile of Argentina credit for the first World Cup hat trick, but FIFA said Friday that Patenaude should hold the title "by virtue of his three goals in the USA's 3-0 win over Paraguay in Montevideo (Uruguay) on 17 July 1930."

The match took place two days before Stabile scored his three goals in Argentina's 6-3 victory against Mexico.

Soccer's world governing body said it uncovered another discrepancy in its World Cup records, which meant Czechoslovakia's Oldrich Nejedly had not been correctly credited with netting all of his country's goals when it beat Germany 3-1 in the 1934 World Cup semifinals at Italy.

Nejedly's hat trick now qualifies as the sixth in World Cup history, FIFA said.
