    Robert Earnshaw (born 6 April 1981) is a Zambian-born Welsh international footballer who currently plays for Chicago Fire in Major League Soccer. He is the only player to have scored a hat-trick in all three divisions of the English Football League, the Premier League, the League Cup, FA Cup, and for his country at International level.Earnshaw was born in Mufulira, Zambia, and spent the first five years of his life there before moving to Malawi. Soon after the death of his father in 1990, Earnshaw's mother moved the family to Bedwas in south Wales. Earnshaw joined Cardiff City as a YTS trainee in 1997, and turned professional a year later. During his first spell at Cardiff he made 205 first team appearances, scoring 105 goals. Eligible to represent either Zambia or Wales, Earnshaw made his debut for the latter in 2003.Moving up two divisions in 2004, Earnshaw joined Premier League side West Bromwich Albion, finishing the 2004–05 season as top goalscorer. Earnshaw signed for Norwich City during the January 2006 transfer window, staying at Carrow Road until the end of the 2006–07 season. At Derby County the following season, Earnshaw spent what he called his worst season in football, scoring one goal in his 22 appearances. Earnshaw's three-year contract with Nottingham Forest expired in June 2011. During his time at Forest, Earnshaw scored 35 goals in 87 appearances. In June 2011, Earnshaw left Forest on a free transfer and signed a two-year contract with his old club, Cardiff City. Since leaving Cardiff City in 2004, Earnshaw's transfer fees totalled £12,650,000.Earnshaw was born on the outskirts of the north central Zambian mining town of Mufulira on 6 April 1981. When he was five, his family moved to Malawi where David Earnshaw took charge of another coal mine and his youngest son began school. Again, the family's stay was to be a short one. In September 1990, following the death of her husband, Rita moved the Earnshaw family to Bedwas, a small Welsh town to the north of Cardiff, where they lived initially with her sister. Earnshaw still has a house there."It was the first time I had been away from Africa." he recalls. "It was just completely different, from one extreme to another. It was much colder as well, just every little thing was different, everyone spoke English over here and although I could speak a little bit I had to learn. But when you're a kid you just get on with it."It was in Wales that he began playing football, kicking a ball around with friends between and after classes at Cardinal Newman RC School, Pontypridd, the school he moved on to after a spell at St. Helen's Primary. Cardinal Newman's was a rugby union-playing school so Earnshaw's first organised football match came at the age of 12 with local youth side Llanbradach. "We didn't win anything, we weren't the best," he says. "I only played one year and then I moved to GE Wales, which was a better team and we won a few local titles. I scored a lot of goals,
