Rotherham United man goes viral for scoring two seconds into game

Wideman Hall was a frequent visitor to Yorkshire, spending three short stints there in his EFL days before returning to the non-league ranks. He currently plays for Croydon Athletic, and his incredible long-range strike recently made headlines throughout the world.

As the match between Croydon and Cockfosters Development got underway, the 36-year-old tried his luck from the center position. In just 2.31 seconds of play, he was able to lift the ball over the goalkeeper and it found its way into the net.

Hall, a graduate of the Crystal Palace youth, struggled at Selhurst Park but went on to have success playing non-league football. Leeds became interested in him after he moved to Southend United as a result of his achievements.

At Elland Road, he was reunited with his former Palace manager Neil Warnock, but he discovered few possibilities. Hall was sent out on loan to Sheffield United as the struggle for spots in West Yorkshire proved to be fierce.

He played for Milton Keynes Dons and Bromley before going back to Yorkshire to play for Rotherham.

Since 2016, when he played for Luton Town in the EFL, he has worked below the fourth division.
