On October 20th, 2013 Midfielder Tim Cahill, #17 of the New York Red Bulls, scored the fastest goal in Major League Soccer league history against the Houston Dynamos. After only 8 seconds into the game, Tim Cahill scored the first and deciding goal of the match, leading the New York Red Bulls to a 3 – 0 victory against the Houston Dynamos. The assist came from Dax McCarty off of the opening kick off and set the tone for the game. Cahill executed a perfect run down the right wing of the field, received the long ball from his defender, and beat the Houston Dynamo keeper with a beautiful right footed shot to the right side netting from about 22 yards out. This was such a well executed goal, that it would have been one of the highlights of the season even if it hadn’t taken place after only 8 seconds. Cahill will certainly be a player to keep your eye on in the upcoming 2013 MLS playoffs.
