Fastest International Goal, History Made

Christoph Baumgartner scoring the fastest goal in international football history

Austria defeated Slovakia at Britislava, with Christoph Baumgartner scoring the fastest goal in international football history after just six seconds.
His goal beat Germany’s 2013 goal against Ecuador’s Lukas Podolski by one second.

From the kickoff, the 24-year-old midfielder eluded three challenges and beat home custodian Martin Dubravka with a low strike.With a late goal, Andreas Weimann gave Ralf Rangnick’s team the victory.

Later on Saturday night, Florian Wirtz gave Germany the lead in France with a 25-yard shot that seemed to ricochet off Dayot Upamecano before brushing the underside of the crossbar on its way in, nearly matching Baumgartner’s incredible performance.

They couldn’t have started in the Slovakian capital any better, as the home crowd watched in utter shock as Baumgartner of RB Leipzig wheeled off to celebrate with his teammates.
Shane Long of Southampton scored the first Premier League goal ever 7.69 seconds into Southampton’s match against Watford in 2019.

In the Champions League, Roy Makaay owns that record after scoring for Bayern Munich 10 seconds into the second leg of their match against Real Madrid in March.

In February, Ryan Hall of Croydon FC scored an incredible goal right away in the London Senior Trophy match against Cockfosters. The non-league team timed the goal at 2.31 seconds.
Guinness World Records, which does not keep track of goals scored outside of professional football, was unable to verify that the goal was indeed the fastest goal scored from kickoff.
