What a debut! With his first touch of the ball, new signing Milos Jojic scored BVB’s fourth goal in their 4-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt. What a way to open his BVB account. It was the fastest debut goal ever scored in the Bundesliga.
Jojic, who had one or two other good moments after his introduction, was on hand to tap home Borussia’s fourth of the afternoon after Eintracht keeper Kevin Trapp failed to hold onto a shot by Kevin Grosskreutz, 17 seconds after coming on - with his first touch of the ball, in his debut game in the Bundesliga.
It was not only the fastest goal scored by a debutant in the Bundesliga, it was also the third-fastest scored by a substitute. Only Ricardo Costa, who netted for Wolfsburg against Karlsruhe 15 seconds after coming on on 28 September 2008, as well as Uwe Wassmer, who only needed 13 seconds after his introduction to find the net for Freiburg againstLeverkusen on 22 September 1996, rank ahead of Jojic in this department.
“I’m very happy for him,“ said Nuri Sahin. “This goal will help him settling in more easily.” And Sebastian Kehl joked: “I’ve been working my butt off for 17 years to set a record, and Milos only needs a few seconds for one…”
