FIFA U20 World Cup Poland 2019: Record-setting Sagna fires Senegal past Tahiti

Record-setting Sagna fires Senegal past Tahiti

It took only 9.6 seconds for forward Amadou Sagna to score the first goal of the Fifa U-20 World Cup Poland 2019 – the fastest goal in the history of the competition – as Senegal sailed ahead of Tahiti and never looked back, winning 3-0 at Lublin Stadium.

The Young Lions of Teranga were on their game from the off, piling on pressure and seizing control with a 2-0 lead inside 30 minutes. Sagna wasn't done turning heads after the first minute, either.
The 19-year-old netted a hat-trick in the Group A opener, scoring one final time in the 50th minute to secure all three points and a perfect start for the Africans.

Senegal will next face Colombia on 26 May, while Tahiti take on Poland that same day.
