WELL, THAT DIDN’T TAKE LONG!

Fastest ever Prem goal!

Saints man smashes the record! 

Southampton striker Shane Long – a man not known for setting many goalscoring records – did just that last week when he netted the quickest goal in Premier League history!

The 32-year-old striker bagged after just 7.69 seconds in his club’s 1-1 draw at Watford – beating the previous record held by Ledley King, who scored for Tottenham after 10 seconds in 2000!

SO, WHAT HAPPENED...

1 Watford kick off and play the ball back to Craig Cathcart...

2 Long closes down and blocks Cathcart’s clearance…

3 He’s outsprints the defender and he’s in on goal...

4 He cheekily lifts his shot over Ben Foster – GOAL!
