SECOND FASTEST GOAL IN PREMIER LEAGUE !
Philip Billing: 2nd fastest goal in EPL
On March 4, Philip Billing has scored for Bournemouth in the English Premier League against Arsenal (2-3) in 9.11 seconds after the kick-off (picture).
The goal of 26-year old Danish midfielder became the 2nd fastest in the history of tournament since its foundation in 1992, behind only Shane Long.
The record holder Long found the net just 7.69 seconds into the Southampton’s game vs Watford (1-1) on 23 April 2019. Curiously, it was Watford who kicked off in that episode!
