Record breaker! Christian Benteke scores fastest ever World Cup qualifying goal (SEE VIDEO)

Belgium striker Christian Benteke scored the fastest goal in World Cup qualifying history when netted after seven seconds against Gibraltar.

Benteke, handed a rare start for the Belgium side by manager Roberto Martinez, forced his way into the starting XI at the expense of Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.

Clearly keen to impress, the Crystal Palace striker couldn’t have started better when he robbed the ball immediately after kickoff, drove forward and scored with a cross-goal drive.

The previous record since detailed timing was kept was held by San Marino’s Davide Gualtieri, who needed 8 seconds to score the opener against England in a 1993 qualifier.

Belgium is second in the FIFA rankings while Gibraltar, almost predictably, are rock bottom.
