Kylian Mbappé scored in just eight seconds against Lille in PSG's third match of the 2022-23 Ligue 1 season on Sunday, making it the fastest goal in Ligue 1 history. Caen's Michel Rio also scored in eight seconds against AS Cannes in 1992.
Kick off, four touches, a Lionel Messi assist and a Donatello lob over the keeper. Lille players didn’t know what came at them.

Kylian just keeps breaking records.
Aside from another historic goal for the young Frenchman, the celebration showed that things at PSG might not be as bad as people think they are.
Goal Worthy of a Mbappé-Messi Make Up?
Mbappé’s week leading up to the game had been surrounded by drama and controversy following his apparent fallout with teammates. Requesting a Neymar transfer, going AFK mid-counterattack, pushing Messi, demanding a penalty — these were all things that made people believe PSG was in trouble.
Well, like much of the news nowadays, it might not have been as serious as we thought.
PSG’s No. 7 scored and pointed directly at Messi, thanking him for a marvelous assist (even after "pushing" him with his shoulder earlier this week).

Not only that, but the whole team came to celebrate with Mbappé and Messi, jumping and dancing as if they'd already won the game.

The vibes are up at PSG. Even if things are bad and a Mbappé vs. Messi-Neymar fallout is happening behind the scenes, they sure do a good job hiding it.
