Crystal Palace striker Benteke beat the previous record of 8.3 seconds, set by San Marino's Davide Gualtieri against England in 1993.
 
Benteke went on to complete a hat-trick with Chelsea's Eden Hazard also on the scoresheet along with Axel Witsel and Dries Mertens.
 
Ibrahim was an unused substitute in Gibraltar's 4-0 defeat in Estonia on Friday.
 
The 25-year-old keeper, who has had loan spells at Sittingbourne, Margate, Maidstone and Tonbridge, is firmly established as Dartford's first-choice keeper and has made nearly 100 first-team appearances.
 
He will be back from international duty in time for the Darts' FA Cup fourth qualifying round trip to Tonbridge on Saturday.
