It took just 29 seconds for Seattle Sounders forward Clint Dempsey to score in the U.S. vs Ghana in Monday’s world cup match.

That 29 seconds is one of the top five fastest goals ever scored in World Cup history.

The fasted goal of all-time was Turkey’s Hakan Sukur in 2002 against South Korea.

Monday’s goal was the fastest ever scored for the U.S. in the World Cup. The U.S. team went on to beat Ghana 2-1 Monday.
