Belgium striker Christian Benteke scored the fastest World Cup qualifying goal after seven seconds against Gibraltar. The 25-year-old’s strike is also the quickest goal in Belgium’s history. The Crystal Palace striker pounced on a loose ball from the kick-off and dribbled into the box before scoring with a left-footed shot. The goal beat the record of 8.3 seconds set by San Marino’s Davide Gualtieri against England in November 1993. Benteke added his second before half-time with Axel Witsel also on the scoresheet as Belgium led 3-0 at half-time at the Estadio Algarve in their 2018 World Cup Group H qualifier. Belgium won the match 6 – 0 away in Gibraltar.
