Australian star nets contender for the fastest goal ever

Published Add your comment

As seasoned football obsessives, we are all aware of the ramifications that an early goal can have for a team.

On the one hand, it can inspire major confidence and set the tone for a comfortable win, yet on certain occasions it is possible for a club - particularly in the case of minnows squaring off against the big boys - to score too early and then attempt to sit back and defend the lead.

In Australia recently, a player by the name of Kym Harris netted a contender for perhaps the fastest goal of all-time during the Adelaide Blue Eagles' clash against the Playford Patriots.

Straight from kick-off, he obviously spotted the opposing goalkeeper slightly off of his line and produced a beautiful lobbed effort from the halfway line that hit the back of the net and left the Patriots' number one red-faced.

The goal was timed at an incredible three seconds - and the Blue Eagles went on to win the match 4-3 in extra-time in a real thriller.

Watch footage of the sublimely quick goal above - with thanks to The Sun and 101 Great Goals for the heads-up.
