The young Argentinian made his mark on club history against Dallas

MLS: New York City FC at FC Dallas Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Without question, the talking point about New York City FC’s 1-1 draw last night with FC Dallas are the apparent injuries to both Anton Tinnerholm and Keaton Parks. And while we await word on their conditions moving forward, fans are sure to be feeling some anxiety.

Other than that, it was quite a lethargic game to watch with neither team looking insanely potent. There was, however, a big moment in NYCFC history that was created.

Just 39 seconds into the game, Tinnerholm connected with Taty Castellanos on an inch-perfect cross that produced City’s only goal of the contest. This is a team record for fastest goal ever scored in club history, beating the previous record of 46 seconds set by Frank Lampard back in 2015 against D.C. United.

For Castellanos — a player who has improved in almost every way since arriving last summer — this is a true achievement. No matter where he goes from here, his name will always been written in history in New York City.

Congrats on the accolade, Taty! Keep up the good work!
