Albania's Nedim Bajrami set a new record for the fastest goal in European Championship history by scoring in the 23rd second of their group stage match against Italy.

The Azzurri were highly favourites for the Saturday evening match at Dortmund's Westfalenstadion.

However, Albania, playing in only their second major tournament, delivered a stunning blow by taking the lead just 23 seconds into the game.

The goal resulted from a poor throw-in by left-back Federico Dimarco, who tried to pass to center-back Alessandro Bastoni. The Inter Milan was caught off guard, allowing Bajrami to steal the ball, take one touch to control it, and then fire a powerful shot past Gianluigi Donnarumma at the near post.

This goal marked Albania's second-ever goal in the European Championship and set a new speed record.

Bajrami's achievement broke Dmitri Kirichenko's record from Euro 2004, when he scored after just 1:07 in Russia's 2-1 win over Greece.

Despite Bajrami's record-breaking goal, Italy came back to win the game. 

Albania will now face Croatia in Hamburg on Wednesday, while Italy will play against Spain in Gelsenkirchen the following day.
