Nieuw wereldrecord: bij het Estse Nõmme Kalju werd een speler al na dik 10 seconden gewisseld. Zat ook totaal niet in de wedstrijd. pic.twitter.com/ghpz6j6zxd

Estonian top flight side Nõmme Kalju made a substitution after just thirteen seconds of their Meistriliiga clash at Levadia.
As with Romania, there is a rule in Estonia about teams containing a set number of U-21 players in their starting line-ups.

Managers have been contravening this by making early substitutions – in this instance, Nõmme Kalju made the switch at the first available opportunity.
They brought on Vladyslav Khomutov for 16-year-old Lauri Suup, but it was not enough to prevent a 2-1 defeat at the A. Le Coq Arena on Sunday.
