Nawaf Al Abed (Arabic: نواف العابد; born January 26, 1990) is a Saudi Arabianfootballer who plays for Al-Hilal. On November 7, 2009 he scored what may be the fastest goal in professional football history. Two seconds into an under-23 Prince Faisal bin Fahad Cup game against Al Shoalah he spotted the goalkeeper out of position and lobbed the ball over him into the goal from midfield. Unfortunately, upon review, the entire game was ruled invalid, as the team had six players over the age of 23 on the field in the second half. Nawaf Al Abed has now accomplished himself as a regular first team player after many good performances like against Al Ittihad, he is also very versatile as he can play on the wing or as a second striker.
