Southampton’s Long scores fastest goal in Premier League history

Ralph Hasenhuttl Southampton

Southampton striker Shane Long made history on Tuesday by recording the fastest goal in Premier League history.

The precise time was clocked at 7.69 seconds.

But in the final minute, Watford's Andre Gray found an equaliser to deny Ralph Hasenhüttl's side all three points.

Amazingly, the goal actually came from Watford's kick-off.

The 32-year-old's effort surpassed the previous fastest Premier League goal, scored by Tottenham defender Ledley King in 9.9 seconds against Bradford in December 2000.

Deposed Omar Al-Bashir Moved To Kober Maximum Security Prison
Al Jazeera'a Hiba Morgan, reporting from Khartoum, said officials disputed the report that al-Bashir was being held in the prison. The African Union is demanding the military hands over power to a civilian-led authority, something the Ugandans also support.

Long then blocks Cathcart's lofted pass, and fortuitously deflects the ball goal-bound.

Long beat Ben Foster after intercepting an attempted clearance by Watford's Craig Cathcart just after kickoff.

Southampton are five points clear of the relegation zone, and with a game in hand over 18-placed Cardiff City and Hasenhuttl knows what his side still need to do.

As it is, the six-point gap should be plenty, with the mission of Ralph Hasenhuttl, the manager brought in to save them from relegation, nearly complete.

The Saints could have scored more with Nathan Redmond and Ryan Bertrand both hitting the woodwork.
