He gave away the fastest penalty in the league’s history bringing down Ciro Immobile after just 39 seconds.

Ampadu dived in bringing down the Italian striker before he got back up and missed the spot kick.

He was booked for the foul and was later subbed off after 66 minutes.

The penalty broke the record for earliest ever given surpassing the 42 seconds it took for Napoli hero Marek Hamsik to be fouled by AC Milan’s Mattia De Sciglio in 2015.

Immobile’s day improved despite the missed chance as Lazio cruised to victory rising to third in the league table – helped by an inspired Sergej Milinkovic-Savic performance as he netted twice.

Ampadu, 22, is on loan at Spezia, who narrowly avoided relegation last season.

He also spent the previous campaign with Venezia as they finished bottom of Serie A in 2021/22.

Ampadu has had a difficult time in Italy having played 33 times for the two clubs picking up 13 yellow cards and two reds in that period.

The versatile player can feature at centre-back, defensive midfield and even right-back on occasion.

He will be hoping to make the Wales squad for the World Cup later this year having won 37 caps for his country.

Ampadu has been on the books of Chelsea since 2017 and he has played 12 times for the Blues.

Before his spells in Italy he spent time on loan at RB Leipzig and Sheffield United.
