The World’s Best One-Match Goal-scorers 2023

Here is the ranking of best scorers in a single match in the world football in 2023 (taking into account national top tiers, national cups and official international games).
Two forwards managed to score 8 goals each, both in the leagues of low rank (below the top 100 national leagues): Sam Philip in New Zealand and Rafinha (full name Rafael de Sá Rodrigues) in Laos.
Of course, this category is more for curiosity, since most of the achievements in the table are of purely local level. But in the list of names we find 2 top players, Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland. They both had a game with 5 goals in 2023.
Haaland's penta-trick in the Champions League quarter-finals for Manchester City vs Bayer (7-0) is definitely the most valuable one-match feat in world football in 2023.
