FIFA announce final three nominees for goal of the year award

Published Add your comment

FIFA have revealed the three nominees who are in contention to win the Puskas Award.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's outstanding goal against England at the end of November last year is among the three goals chosen to win the prestigious award.

His amazing 30-yard bicycle kick nestled into the back of the net after Joe Hart's clearance fell to the Swedish international.

Manchester United and Chelsea target Nemanja Matic's goal against Porto at the start of the year also makes the list.

The Serbian midfielder finished off a fine move by blasting the ball past Porto goalkeeper Helton on the volley in his side's 2-2 draw against their arch-rivals. 

 The last contender to win the award was scored by Barcelona forward Neymar.

Neymar, playing for Brazil, hit a beautifully-timed half volley from 20 yards against Japan in the Confederations Cup with just three minutes on the clock.

Which goal do you think deserves to win the award? Have your say in the comments box below.
