AC Milan’s Rafael Leao scores fastest goal in Serie A history



AC Milan forward, Rafael Leao, scored inside six seconds during his side’s 2-1 victory over Sassuolo in a Serie A clash on Sunday.

The goal became the fastest goal in the history of the Italian top flight, beat the record of 8.9 seconds set by Piacenza’s Paolo Poggi against Fiorentina in 2001.

21-year-old Leao took Hakan Calhanoglu’s pass in his stride to stroke Milan ahead virtually from the kick-off.
