Soccer Goal

Someone broke the world record for fastest soccer goal scored. It took Ricardo Olivera 2.5 seconds to do the feat. “When the referee blew his whistle for the kick-off, Olivera, rather than passing the ball to a teammate, blasted it directly at goal after noticing the goalkeeper was far off his line.” It went in. The previous record was 3.69 seconds. The former record holder was quoted saying, “Good luck to [Ricardo], it doesn’t bother me, nobody even cared when I did it. Hopefully, he makes a million dollars out of it.”
