Alex Morgan scored 12 seconds into the United States women’s national team’s Olympic qualifying match against Costa Rica in what is believed to be the fastest goal in U.S. Soccer history.
Carli Lloyd flicked on a direct ball from Lindsey Horan, and the ball dropped into the path of Morgan, who settled it and scored with her right foot after a dozen ticks of the second-hand.
Officially, there is no word yet on whether or not it is the fastest goal in team history, but it is believed to be. It is the fastest goal in CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying history, breaking Abby Wambach’s mark of 35 seconds from 2012.
