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.
