This morning Zlatan announced to Los Angeles and the world his desire to conquer America.

Well, Ola Kamara had an announcement of his own to make: The Norwegian international wants to keep a hold of his starting job and isn’t going down without a fight, scoring a hat trick in an international friendly vs. Australia that also served as a tune-up for the Aussies.

The first came in the 36th minute when Kamara trailed the attack and accepted a cross from the left flank before firing a low finish.

In the 57th, the Galaxy forward took advantage of some sloppy play by the Aussies and quickly sliced a shot past keeper Maty Ryan. Then in stoppage time, Kamara drew a defender in on the left side of the box before darting towards goal and slipping a rocket past the beleaguered Ryan to score his first hat trick for Norway.

Things are getting interesting mighty quick in La La land.
