Sammy Ameobi’s eight seconds goal in Newcastle United 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspurs made history as the fastest scored by a substitute from open play in the history of the English premier league.
Ameobi was introduced before the start of the second half and scored eight seconds into kick-off of the half. He ran behind the Tottenham Hotspurs defence to finish off a delightful through ball from Jack Colback to draw his team level after Emmanuel Adebayor had given Spurs the lead.
The goal was also a personal milestone for the long-limbed, pacy winger as it is his first ever goal in the English Premier League since his debut for the magpies in 2010.
Ameobi has only previously scored for Newcastle in the football league cup, a winning goal against ç on August 25, 2011.
