Jeonnam Dragons striker Plana set a new record for the shortest time to score a goal in the 2023 season of the K League 2.
Jeonnam, of which Plana is a member, won 2-0 against Cheonan City in the 15th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at Gwangyang Football Stadium on the 27th at 4pm. Thanks to Plana’s first goal in the 18th minute and Choo Sang-hoon’s second goal in the 28th minute, Jeonnam held off Cheonan to earn three important points.
In the match, Plana created a record that will go down in K League 2 history. He scored the game’s first goal just 18 seconds into the match, giving Jeonnam the confidence to play out the rest of the game. The goal, scored just 18 seconds into the game, is the fastest goal in the history of the 2023 season. It is also the second fastest goal in the history of the K League. The fastest goal in K League 2 was scored by Anyang striker Shim Dong-woon in the 17th minute of the 2021 season against Seoul Eland and FC Anyang.스포츠토토
It was a record for both K League 1 and K League 2. The first in this category was scored by Incheon striker Bang Seung-hwan on 3 May 2007 during a match between Incheon United and Pohang Steelers. Bang shocked everyone when he scored just 11 seconds after the kick-off. Plana finished fifth overall.
“I’m really happy to win such an important game. We played well. I’m happy that my goal helped the team win,” he said. “As soon as I started the game, Valdivia gave me a good cross from the left and I was able to calmly put the ball in the net. It felt good to score a goal so quickly, and it’s even more amazing to do it in such a short time,” he smiled.
