ZIMBABWE international forward, Nyasha Mushekwi, scored the fastest goal in the Chinese Super League so far this season after netting in Zhejiang Greentown’s 1-1 draw away at Shanghai Port on Saturday.
It was Mushekwi’s fourth goal of the season.
Zhejiang broke the deadlock just 37 seconds into the game, as Shanghai defender Zhang Linpeng’s mistake in the box allowed Mushekwi to tap in easily.

It was the quickest goal in the CSL this season.
However, Zhang made amends for his previous fault by assisting his teammate Lyu Wenjun in the 15th minute.
The latter received an accurate long pass from Zhang, dribbled through Zhejiang defender Dong Yu, and beat goalkeeper Gu Chao one-on-one to pull one back for Shanghai.
Zhejiang created a scoring chance in the 72nd minute, but Mushekwi’s header following a corner kick flew over the crossbar.
After the draw, Shanghai ranked seventh in the table, followed by Zhejiang two points behind.
Shanghai head coach Ivan Leko voiced hopes that the team could notch a higher ranking, but now they should “talk less and do more.”
Zhejiang will face Cangzhou Mighty Lions tomorrow, while Shanghai will encounter Tianjin Jinmen Tiger on Saturday. – Wires
