Bajrami scores fastest ever Euros goal after 23 seconds

Fastest Euros Goal

DORTMUND: Albania’s Nedim Bajrami made history by scoring the fastest goal ever at a European Championship, netting after just 23 seconds in their opening Euro 2024 game against Italy on Saturday. This shattered the previous record of 67 seconds set by Russia’s Dmitri Kirichenko against Greece in 2004.

Bajrami, who plays for Sassuolo in Italy, capitalized on a poor throw-in by Italy’s Federico Dimarco, firing the ball into the net from inside the box during the Group B match against the reigning champions.

Italy quickly responded, with Bastoni equalizing in the 11th minute and Nicolo Barella putting the Azzurri ahead in the 16th minute.

Among the fastest goals in Euros history is Luke Shaw’s strike for England against Italy in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley, scored after one minute and 56 seconds, ranking as the sixth-fastest. Italy won that final on penalties.
