I once scored even faster than this… oh wait, we’re talking soccer here.
This must have been a nice shot off the kickoff. In college we once had a friendly scrimmage with the women’s team. To help even things up, our coach (who played professionally) played on the women’s side. In order to humble our loudmouth goalie during after we had scored, took a tap off the kickoff and sailed it into the net over his head. I didn’t time it, but I imagine it was close to 2.5 seconds.
AP - An amateur soccer player who scored 2 1/2 seconds into a game earlier this month was credited with the world’s fastest goal by the England Football Association on Tuesday.
