UEFA.com glances back at the UEFA European Championship’s quickest objectives, including a couple of fast strikes from UEFA EURO 2016.
1:07 – Dmitri Kirichenko (Russia 2-1 Greece, 20/06/2004)
Kirichenko watched from the bench as Russia’s UEFA EURO 2004 hopes vanished with back-to-back defeats, but roared out of the blocks when coach Georgi Yartsev started him for their final Group A outing. The CSKA striker dashed through the following 67 seconds to guide a right-footed exertion past Antonios Nikopolidis.
1:40 – Robert Lewandowski (Poland 1-1
Portugal (3-5 pens), 30/06/2016)
The Poland striker drew a blank in his first four matches at UEFA EURO 2016, but opened his account just 100 seconds into his country’s quarter-final in Marseille, applying a typically unerring finish to Kamil Grosicki’s pull-back from the left.
2:00 – Robbie Brady (France 2-1
Republic of Ireland, 26/06/2016)
The round of 16 games in Lyon was exactly two minutes old when Robbie Brady gave Ireland a shock lead, firing a low penalty off the foot of Hugo Lloris’s left-hand post.
2:07 – Sergei Aleinikov (England 1-3 Soviet
Glenn Hoddle was easily dispossessed early on, and Aleinikov surged through the middle and turned sharply before finishing past Chris Woods, as the USSR got the win they needed to reach the semi-finals.
2:14 – Petr Jiracek (Greece 1-2 Czech Republic, 12/06/2012)
Tomas Hubschman’s measured pass between makeshift Greece center-backs Kyriakos Papadopoulos and Kostas Katsouranis invited Jiracek to score a goal swiftly added to by Vaclav Pilar, as the Czechs grabbed their first points in Group A.

2:14 – Alan Shearer (Germany 1-1
England (6-5 pens), 26/06/1996)
This blockbuster semi-final began with a bang; Paul Ince had already had a rasping volley athletically turned over by Andreas Köpke when the keeper was beaten, Shearer swooping to register his fifth goal of the tournament after Tony Adams had flicked on Paul Gascoigne’s corner.
2:25 – Michael Owen (Portugal
2-2 England (6-5 pens), 24/06/2004)
England enjoyed a dream start when Jorge Andrade failed to cut out Costinha’s misjudged back header, Owen pouncing on the loose ball, pivoting and flicking beyond Ricardo. Euro 2020 fans can book England Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
The goalkeeper later buried the decisive spot-kick as Portugal recovered to reach the last four.
2:27– Hristo Stoichkov (Bulgaria
1-0 Romania, 13/06/1996)
The crowd was still settling into their seats for this group game at St James’ Park when, picking up a pass, Stoichkov took advantage of a slip by Miodrag Belodedici to dart through a gap in the defense. He made an additional meter of the room with a charming sham and wounded the ball past Bogdan Stelea with his left foot.
And in a final…
5:17 – Chus Pereda (Spain 2-1 Soviet Union,
The 1964 showpiece was less than six minutes old when Luis Suarez’s right-wing cross was thumped in by Pereda from close range, the Soviet Union’s center-backs having failed to clear.
