Chucky scores third fastest goal in Serie A history
It took Chucky Lozano 9 seconds to open the scoring in Napoli's visit to Hellas Verona on matchday 19 of the Serie A. The goal became the third fastest in the history of the league, only behind Leao for Milan at 6 and Poggi at Piacenza with 8.
He waited, in the area, for a defender who failed to clear a long pass that, at first, seemed harmless. His mistake made it easier for the striker to be all alone.
As the ball came bouncing in, all he had to do was time it and send the ball into the net with a right-footed shot. The volley denied Silvestri the slightest chance of saving his side. Their early misjudgment cost Ivan Juric's side dearly.
Gattuso's reaction from the bench was striking. While he was pleased with the good play, he quickly turned to seriousness. A professional gesture in keeping with the seriousness he is instilling in Napoli's players this season.
