DORTMUND, Germany (Reuters) - Albania shocked Italy with the fastest goal ever scored at a European Championship when Nedim Bajrami blasted home after 23 seconds of their 2024 Euro clash on Saturday.

Bajrami capitalised on a misplaced throw-in by Federico Dimarco to slam the ball past Gianluigi Donnarumma in the Italian goal from an angle.

Italy equalised in the 11th minute when Alessandro Bastoni headed home after a corner before Nicolo Barella put the Azzurri in front five minutes later.
