NASHVILLE, TN - Nashville SC's all-star candidate, Hany Mukhtar scored the fastest hat-trick in a game in franchise history, as Nashville SC showed a dominant performance and win 5-1 against the Chicago Fire, Sunday night, July 18, at Nissan Stadium.

He delivered a hat trick in the first 16 minutes of the game and it only took six minutes for Mukhtar to score each goal, which is the fastest by any MLS player this season.

The Chicago Fire was forced to play most of the game limping with only 10-man on the field, as their center back Johan Kappelhof got a red card in the 14th minute. CJ Sapong and Brian Anunga would join the goal-scoring party later in the game. This is the most that Nashville SC ever scored goals in a game with five.

10 minutes is all that Nashville needed to open the goal tally, after Sapong capitalize on the Fire's mistake at the back, dished it off to Mukhtar who finished it past goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth. Three minutes later, Mukhtar doubled Nashville's lead with a goal from the far post. Kappelhof's red card in the 16th led to a beautiful free-kick sent by Mukhtar to complete the hat trick. Sapong scored another one for Nashville to finish the first half 4-0.

The Fire only able to get back once after the second-half kickoff through Ignaceo Aliseda, who finished a beautifully placed cross from Przemyslaw Frankowski. Brian Anunga completed the Nashville's domination with his first career MLS goal in the 62nd minute.

With this win, Nashville SC is now sitting at third in the Eastern Conference standings with 25 points.

Nashville SC will continue their journey this season on Wednesday, July 21 in a game against the Columbus Crew SC, 7:30 p.m. ET at Field.
