Stoke keeper Begovic thrilled with Southampton goal

Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic was thrilled to score after 12 seconds in their draw with Southampton.

Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic was thrilled to score after 12 seconds in their draw with Southampton.

The Bosnian scored with his first touch of the ball just 12 seconds into the 1-1 draw with Southampton, the fastest goal ever scored by a goalkeeper in professional football.

Begovic thumped the ball upfield and, wind-assisted, it cleared the Southampton defence and bounced over their Polish goalkeeper, Artur Boruc.

"It’s a cool feeling," said Begovic. "But I feel bad for Artur Boruc when something like that happens."
