30 days to go

Three goals have been scored in the very first minute of a FIFA Women’s World Cup™ match, starting with Sweden’s Lena Videkull at China PR 1991, when she scored the fastest goal in tournament history after just 30 seconds of her team’s match against Japan.

Videkull is followed by Canada’s Melissa Tancredi, who found the back of the net against Australia in 2007 after just 37 seconds. USA's Lori Chalupny is third, having scored after 54 seconds against Nigeria in 2007.
