Fulham and Bournemouth went into half-time at Craven Cottage 0-0, but the Cherries would kick off the second half in stunning fashion.
Within seconds of kick-off, Philip Billing fired a sublime first-time over-the-top through ball to an onrushing Solanke.
A cool and composed Solanke expertly converted past Marek Rodak to hand Bournemouth the lead in the Championship clash.
It’s unsurprising that Solanke’s opener hit home with FIFA players, who flocked to Twitter to draw comparisons with the so-called ‘kick-off glitch.’
“Bournemouth scoring a prime KSI kick-off goal from FIFA 14,” one fan tweeted.
A second Twitter user wrote: “Great real-life FIFA glitch there, as four or five Bournemouth players bounced on the spot in perfect sync.”
While someone else commented: “Bournemouth exploited the kick-off glitch in real life today.”
And a fourth added: “Bournemouth throwing it back to 2016 with the kick-off glitch.”

Bournemouth were unable to hold on to their lead as Tosin Adarabioyo’s late equaliser rescued a point for Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Scott Parker’s men remain second in the Championship table, only one point short of league leaders Fulham.
The Bournemouth manager insisted that his side’s opener was a “goal was straight off the training ground.”
Speaking to BBC Radio Solent, Parker said: “Steve Cook epitomised everything that we needed to do tonight, Mark Travers and Cahill too.
“I said before the game that we would need to weather it and it would be painful at times, but they put it in.
“The goal was straight off the training ground. We worked on it on Thursday to try to work out where they were weak and sometimes they don't always come to fruition on the stage.
“But tonight, there's nothing more pleasing that it came off. We wanted to try to exploit the spaces between full-back and centre-half on transitions and the areas where Dominic Solanke was popping up, and it worked.”
