Due to the nature of the football game, some days are happy and others are sad. The mind-blowing time at which the quickest goal in history was ever scored is revealed right here.

During the FIFA World Cup 2022, players will do anything to get their names on the scoresheet. With three goals, Enner Valencia leads all other contenders for the Golden Boot, while Bukayo Saka, Ferran Torres, and Lionel Messi are closely behind with two apiece.  The tournament has already seen a number of incredible goals, including Messi’s long-range power shot against Mexico and Richarlison’s acrobatic kick against Serbia.

When an early goal is achieved, the level of anticipation always changes. The game moves more quickly, and the underperforming team plays harder as a result.
