The earliest goal ever scored in a World Cup final was by Max Morlock for West Germany against Hungary in 1954.
His goal was scored after just 19 seconds and remains the fastest goal ever scored in a World Cup final. The only other goal before the 20th minute came from Mario Kempes for Argentina against Netherlands in 1978.
The most recent goal before half-time was by Diego Maradona against West Germany in 1986. The first goal after half-time was by another Argentine, Jorge Burruchaga, who beat England goalkeeper Peter Shilton in the second half of Argentina’s victory over England in 1986.
