Ajax's teen sensation Kasper Dolberg grabs 18-minute hat-trick

The Danish teenager is the next big thing coming out of the famous Dutch club.

CRUYFF, VAN BASTEN, Bergkamp, Ibrahimovic, Suarez… the list goes on.

Countless world class strikers have worn the red and white of Ajax down through the years and the latest young player expected to go on to great things is 19-year-old Kasper Dolberg.

The Danish forward only joined the Dutch heavyweights from Silkeborg in the summer of 2015 after being spotted by the same scout who discovered the likes of Zlatan and Christian Eriksen.

But after impressing for their U19s, he made his first team debut at the start of this season and hasn’t looked back since — scoring eight goals in 12 league appearances.

At home to NEC Nijmegen this afternoon, Dolberg bagged a hat-trick during an 18-minute spree in the first half as Ajax earned a 5-0 win.

His third was a expertly-executed backward header on 37 minutes.
