Blink and you'll miss it -- Rafael Leao teken die vinnigste doel in die Serie A-geskiedenis aan

Daar is vinnig begin, en dan is daar vinnige begin.

Dit het AC Milan net ses sekondes geneem om Sondag met Sassuolo voor te loop — die vinnigste doel in die geskiedenis van Serie A.
Rafael Leao wrote his name into the record books when Hakan Calhanoglu drove into the Sassuolo half straight from kickoff and found Leao, who cut through the opposition defense to score with precisely 6.2 seconds on the clock.
It not only beat the previous record in Italian football set by Paolo Poggi, but also became the fastest goal ever scored in Europe’s top five leagues.
    AC Milan, without the injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic, went on to win 2-1 thanks to a second goal from Alexis Saelemaekers midway through the first half.
    Domenico Berardi’s late free-kick proved only a consolation for the home side.
    The win means Milan is one point ahead of rival Inter at the top of Serie A and four clear of Serie A champion Juventus in third.
      Poggi, who previously held the Serie A record when he scored after eight seconds for Piacenza in December 2001, graciously handed over his accolade to 21-year-old Leao.
      Congratulations to @RafaeLeao7 for beating, or rather, verpletterend, my record for the fastest goal in @SerieA after 19 jare. Well done,” het hy op Twitter geskryf.
