In a friendly against second-tier Swiss club FC Winterthur on Tuesday, Julian Koch of Second Bundesliga side FC St. Pauli scored in just five seconds. How did he do it? By breaking the rules.
During a kickoff, all defending players are required to stand outside the midfield circle. Koch did not. He's very clearly inside the circle when Winterthur kicks off.
Koch uses his advantage to steal the ball from the attacking team and fires a shot on goal from more than 40 yards out.
The referee never noticed, so the goal stood. St. Pauli won, 2-0.
