It took Maccabi Tel-Aviv forward Stipe Perica just 13 minutes to score the first goal of the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League proper on 14 September.

The Croatian netted in a 4-1 win against Group A rivals Alashkert in Israel to earn a place in footballing immortality (or, at the very least, in a pub quiz).

Mosta's Christ Ememe Evo had struck the first goal of UEFA Europa Conference League qualifying, on 6 July in a 3-2 win against Spartak Trnava. But who scored the first goals in other UEFA club, international, youth and futsal competitions?
