Benteke Scores FIFA Fastest Goal.
Belgium striker Christian Benteke scored the fastest FIFA World Cup qualifying goal after seven seconds against Gibraltar on Monday. The 25-year-old’s strike is also the quickest goal in Belgium’s history.
The Crystal Palace FC striker pounced on a loose ball from the kick-off and dribbled into the box before scoring with a left-footed shot. The goal beat the record of 8.3 seconds set by San Marino’s Davide Gualtieri against England in November 1993.
