Fabinho (BRA), Brazil forward
I had no idea that I had broken the record for the fastest goal at a FIFA finals tournament! Obviously, I am delighted and honoured and really grateful to my team-mates which helped me achieve it. I have to pay special thanks to Alex who flicked the ball on to me. I thought he was outstanding tonight, but then again, he only performed as well as he did because of the way the team worked together.
