German side Red Bull Leipzig successfully pulled off the boldest kick-off strategy you could possibly utilize in soccer, leading to the match’s opening goal in just seven seconds!
The newly-promoted third division side kicked off against VfB Stuttgart II in a reckless 2-0-8 formation, punting the ball upfield and sending eight players immediately into the final third. The gamble — or should we say, invasion — paid off, as Stuttgart’s defense couldn’t deal with the onslaught of attackers at all. After the punt and two quick flick-ons, Leipzig’s Daniel Frahn headed home one of the quickest goals of all time.
The world hasn’t seen an ambush like that since the Storming of the Bastille!
