The Tanzanian soccer team starred in what could be one of the fastest penalties in soccer history this Tuesday in its home match against Madagascar for the qualifying rounds for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, the agency reports Reuters.

Five seconds from kick-off, the game’s central referee, Mashood Ssali from Ugandan, whistled in favor of the homeowners after Tanzanian Simon Msuva was brought down in the penalty area by the opposing goalkeeper, Melvin Adrien, during a swift offensive. .

The maximum penalty was executed by captain Erasto Nyoni, who would open the scoring very early for Tanzania, which ended up winning 3-2 and settling at the top of group J of the African Football Confederation.

The penalty in favor of Tanzania could well be a record, although this has yet to be officially confirmed. Despite the absence of official records regarding these cases, in an international friendly in 2014 Montenegro converted a throw from 11 meters after a foul at 10 seconds of play. Meanwhile, at club level, in the match between the Germans Hamburg and Paderborn in February 2015, the referee decreed a penalty at eight seconds.
