The German-Congolese was on song thrice as the Storks zoomed into the second round of the German Cup
Makana Baku has recorded his first career hat-trick in Holstein’s 6-0 whitewash of Salmrohr in Sunday’s Germany Cup fixture.

The German second division side recorded a routine victory at the Salmtalstadion with the 21-year-old stealing the show, while Ghana youth international David Atanga struck once and assisted three times.

Baku put Andre Schubert’s side ahead in the 39th minute to give the Storks a slim half time lead. Lee Jae-sung doubled the visitors’ advantage after 54 minutes before Atanga made it three nine minutes later.

A second half brace from the German-Congolese completed his treble while Finn Porath’s late minute strike sealed the massive triumph.

Holstein Kiel will know their second-round foes when the draw is held on August 18.

The left-winger began his youth career with Mainz 05 before joining SV Gonsenheim. He moved to Schubert’s team in June 2019 for an undisclosed transfer fee having agreed on a three-year contract.
