When a goal is scored in a standard regulation game of soccer, the ball is returned to the middle of the field for a kickoff by the team scored on the same way the first kickoff is when the game first begins.
There are no statistics for the longest goal scored in the World Cup. However the fastest goal scored from kickoff was 11 seconds. It was accomplished by Hakan Sukur in 2002.
Under the Laws of the Game, the Kickoff is always a ceremonial restart. The whistle must be blown prior to the kickoff at the beginning of each period of play and yes, after every goal scored.
Hakan Sukur scored the fastest goal in world cup history. From the kickoff, it took him 11 seconds to score. (He played for Team Turkey)
The fastest goal in the 2010 world cup was scored by Thomas Mueller, in three minutes.
Yes, but this is very unlikely. In order for a kickoff to be valid, the ball must be placed on the center spot, be kicked, and move in a forward direction (toward the opponent's goal). For this reason, and own-goal can only be scored directly from a kickoff if it is kicked into the air and carried backward by the wind, or is kicked so incredibly hard that it rebounds from the opponent's goalpost or crossbar and flies back into your own goal. Both scenarios would be considered an own-goal from kickoff, as no other player touched the ball except the kicker. In short, it is technically possible under the Laws of the Game to score an own-goal directly from the kickoff, but you are unlikely to ever see it happen, ever.
