Ghana defender David Addy makes fastest penalty in history, challenges Usain Bolt

David Addy

Ghana defender David Addy is likely to enter the Guinness Book of Records for probably causing the fastest penalty in the history of football when the Black Stars played Montenegro on Wednesday.

If Jamaican Usain Bolt took 9.58 seconds to break the world record of 100 meters, Addy took almost the same time to make probably the fastest penalty in the world.

The game was only 10 seconds old when the referee of the match between Ghana and Montenegro signaled a penalty for Addy's hacking down of an opponent in the box.

This has been widely speculated in the Portuguese media as probably the fastest penalty in the history of football even though it has not been corroborated.

Misfortune of misfortunes hit the Vitoria Guimaraes defender as Ghana ended up losing 1-0, precisely due to the converting of the penalty.

    GSN, cut the boy some slack. Let's get over it, let's concentrate on his good performances. Regardless of the penalty Addy is still a good left back. Ghanaian people only broadcast peoples bad news, but whisper their success.

    Exactly, what is the point of this article. Useless journalism, u guys are just bored and have nothing better to report about. He still played good after the penalty. He is not the reason why we lost, we had 90 mins to score goals. Let's report about what our players are doing well abroad and stop this nonsense hate campaign. Shame on u Ghana soccernet, I actually had respect for this site. Smh.
