Hirving Lozano's nickname Chucky invokes images of the creepy redheaded doll of horror film fame and after Saturday he’ll be haunting the nightmares of AZ Alkmaar keeper Marco Bizot.
Lozano, a Mexico international, used his speed and hustle to score the second goal in the midst of PSV Eindhoven scoring three goals in five minutes for a 3-2 win on Saturday in the Eredivisie.
Lozano’s goal was his 15th of his debut season with PSV, pulling him to within one of league-leader Fran Sol. It came in the 76th minute.

It’s not the first time Lozano has used his hustle to score a goal. He scored this goal back when he played for Pachuca.
Lozano’s strike came two minutes after Gaston Pereiro got PSV on the board with a nice volley and three minutes before Marco van Ginkel put the Eindhoven club in front with a penalty kick, all in a five-minute span. You can watch all three goals in succession below:
The win over third-place Alkmaar put PSV seven points ahead of second-place Ajax. PSV can clinch the Eredivisie title with a win over Ajax next week.
