For the second time in less than a week, the U.S. Women’s National Team cruised past Switzerland, and for the second time in less than a week, a new face scored seconds into her debut.

Kealia Ohai scored just 48 seconds into her debut, helping the USWNT rout Switzerland, 5-1, in the second of two friendly matches. Oahi’s rapid-fire finish set the record for fastest debut goal, breaking Lynn Williams’ mark set just last week by one second.

The Swiss opened the scoring in shocking fashion, as┬áSandrine Mauron fired the visitors ahead just seven minutes in. It then took 18 minutes for the U.S. to find their equalizer through Carli Lloyd, who fired the score to 1-1 on an assist from Kelly O’Hara.

Lloyd began the second half with a second goal just six minutes in before the rout truly began. Christen Press pushed the lead to 3-1 just two minutes later before Crystal Dunn added a 63rd minute finish of her own. Ohai then wrapped up the scoring with an 82nd minute finish of a Press assist.

The USWNT wraps up their 2016 schedule against Romania for a pair of friendlies set for Nov. 10 and Nov. 13.
