VIDEO: Arsenal's Lukas Podolski scores after SIX seconds for Germany

Arsenal's Lukas Podolski wasted no time in responding to criticism from Oliver Bierhoff.

Arsenal star Lukas Podolski will be causing a few record books to be checked tomorrow morning, after scoring an international goal after just six seconds.

He was starting for Germany against Ecuador, in an away friendly fixture - and appeared extra motivated after being told by German legend Oliver Bierhoff that he did not merit his place in the squad.

Despite the Ecuadorian's kicking off, Podolski pressed the home side into a quick mistake pouncing to slot past the goalkeeper.

He went onto score a second goal later in the first half as Germany raced into a 4-0 first half lead before Antonio Valencia pulled one back for the hosts, with the game finishing 4-2.

You can watch his strike below...
