While it’s yet to be rubber-stamped, there’s a good possibility that the fastest goal ever scored cropped up in the third-tier of Russian football earlier this month, when veteran Mitos midfielder Michail Osinov stepped up and cracked one home from kick-off against Olympia Gelendzhik on September 11th…
The official record holder is the 3.17 seconds it took for then-Atletico Mineiro striker Fred’s similar effort to loop into the net at the Sao Paulo Juniors Cup back in 2006, though Osinov’s effort is possibly a tad quicker – seems like we’re just waiting on an official verification now.
