WATCH VIDEO: Belgium Striker, Christian Benteke Goal, Scores The Fastest Goal In World Cup History

Christian Benteke celebrates his rapid strike
Hat-Trick hero Christian Benteke scored after just SEVEN seconds for Belgium in their 6-0 thrashing of Gibraltar – the fastest goal in World Cup history. Benteke’s record takes in both qualifying AND final World Cup matches.

The terrorising Crystal Palace striker intercepted a wayward pass almost straight from kick-off, then powered his way past a hapless Gibraltar defender before thrashing the ball home past keeper Deren Ibrahim with his left foot.

Benteke scored again in the 43rd and 56th minutes, with Axel Witsel, Dries Mertens and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard adding the extras.

The previous record since detailed timing was kept was held by San Marino’s Davide Gualtieri, who needed just eight seconds to score the opener against England in a 1993 qualifier.
