A hat trick is the accomplishment of a player scoring three goals in the same game (some definitions also require the goals to be consecutive). Its use to describe this achievement originates with cricket in England, when a player who took three wickets in a row was given a special hat to commemorate it, and is now used in virtually every sport.there is also 'The perfect hat trick'where a player scores with his left foot, right foot and a header,in any order

What do you mean by Hattrickin games Explain?

I think you mean a hat-trick. In soccer, when a player scores three goals during a match, he is awarded a 'hat-trick' which in today's game means keeping the match ball. Historically, it was a hat, hence the name. When soccer (Association Football) was in its infancy in England during the 1860s, a hat was a valuable and needed piece of clothing. Two goals in one match is a 'brace', for which their is no reward, except perhaps, contractually.
