Hardest and fastest goal in history?


21st, February 2007


Over at The Guardian, they’ve been arguing the toss about the fastest goal ever scored. By that, they mean hardest in mph. Well, after a couple of weeks of debate, they seem to have found the most blistering goal ever. No, it’s not Obi Martins or Tony Yeboah, but Sporting Lisbon’s Brazilian left-back Ronny "Homem-Bomba" (human bomb) Heberson, who rifled in a free-kick against Naval in November last year. It was taken from 16.5 metres out, and hit the net in 0.28 seconds and so, by their calculations, that’s an incredible 131.82mph.
