Dhaka  – FIFA says Belgium forward Christian Benteke took 8.1 seconds to score the fastest goal in World Cup history.The official timing confirmed Tuesday means Benteke’s goal in a qualifying match against Gibraltar was 0.2 seconds quicker than Davide Gualtieri for San Marino in 1993.

forward and scored with a clipped shot over the goalkeeper.Gibraltar helped write a chapter of World Cup history in just its third qualifying match after joining FIFA in May.
