Lionel Messi, 36, Argentina, has scored the fastest goal of his career메이저놀이터.

Messi rattled the net in just 72 seconds of the friendly against Australia at the Walkers Stadium in Beijing, China, at 9 p.m. ET on Friday. Receiving a pass from Enzo Fernandez in the Australian half, Messi opened the scoring with a picturesque left-footed curling shot with two defenders in front of him. The goal came just 1 minute and 12 seconds after kickoff.

Messi’s goal was the fastest of his career. The previous record was 2 minutes and 46 seconds after kickoff against Nigeria in 2014.

It was one of Messi’s trademark goals. After receiving a pass from Fernandez, Messi cut in from the front of the arc with two defenders in front of him, then unleashed his trademark short cut and slap left-footed shot. The ball left his feet, curled and stretched, and found the corner of the Australian goal. Goalkeeper Matthew Ryan was unable to keep out the long-range effort despite knowing the trajectory.

Meanwhile, Argentina defeated Australia 2-0 thanks to Messi’s 72nd-second goal and German Fezzela’s 24th-minute strike in the second half.
