So as it stands Comoros and Guinea-Bissau haven't registered a goal yet after playing their second game.

With all being said, as the 2021 AFCON is concerned - Samuel Chukwueze from Nigeria has scored the fastest goal so far which is under 3-minutes. The Villarreal star after a back-hill assist from a teammate Moses Simon placed it comfortably past the Sudan goalie.

The left-foot midfielder has started only 4 games for the outfit this season plus 13 subs in all competitions and hopes the Spanish side will reconsider his playing time after this tournament.
