Southampton striker Shane Long scored after just seven seconds on Tuesday night, pouncing on a wayward clearance from Watford defender Craig Cathcart.
Long achieved the remarkable milestone by netting after just 7.69 seconds to break the previous record of 9.9 seconds which had stood since 2000 when Ledley King scored for Tottenham against Bradford.
It was Watford who had kick-off and rolled the ball back to Craig Cathcart who took a touch before an attempted punt up the field was charged down by Shane Long.
It broke kindly for Long and the striker was in one-on-one with keeper Ben Foster and showed great composure to lift the ball past him to score.
