Di Natale ends football career with a hat trick

Antonio Di Natale scored a hat trick in what was likely to be his last match for Udinese as his team drew 3-3 against Sampdoria in its last Serie A match on Saturday.

Stefano Okaka headed Sampdoria into an early lead, but Di Natale leveled with a magnificent free kick into the top near corner, and the former Italy striker side-footed in Roberto Pereyra's cross in the 33rd.

The match changed in two second-half minutes as Samp took the lead with goals from Eder and Roberto Soriano .

Di Natale completed his hat trick in bizarre fashion two minutes from time after Sampdoria substitute Pawel Wszolek sent a backpass from the halfway line straight to the Udinese forward for his 193rd Serie A goal.
