Sport: The first score came after 56 minutes when the Norwegian got free outside the 16-metre area with a nice two-footed feint and knocked the ball into the corner. A few minutes later he showed his fast legs again when he was brought down in the AGF box, and the referee pointed to the penalty mark. The 19-year-old took the penalty himself and scored.

In the 69th minute he drifted into the field at great speed and put the ball between the legs of AGF goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell. With that he completed his hat-trick.

13 minutes is fast, but the record for the fastest hat-trick in the Danish Superliga is held by Icelandic Aron Johannsson, who in 2012 scored three times in just four minutes for AGF against Horsens. Schjelderup had an assist on Daniel Svensson’s lead goal early in the 1st half.

Schjelderup was sold to Benfica last year, but the first six months in Portugal did not go as desired. In September, he returned to Nordsjælland on loan, where he has continued to prove himself.

Nordsjælland is in third place and has six points ahead of Brøndby at the top of the table. AGF is eleven points behind Monday’s opponent. Magnus Knudsen started for AGF and received a yellow card before being replaced after 65 minutes.

Sindre Walle Egeli (17) was replaced seven minutes before the end for Nordsjælland. Schjelderup was taken off the field in the same sequence.
