Mohamed Salah wins FIFA Puskas Award

By on September 25, 2018

Liverpool and Egypt forward Mohamed Salah has won the FIFA Puskas Award for 2018 for the best goal scored.

He was presented with the award for the best goal scored between July 2017 and July 2018 during The Best FIFA Football Awards ceremony, on Monday, in London.

Salah’s effort in the Merseyside derby, in which he weaved through multiple Everton defenders before curling the ball into the top corner, was judged to come out on top.

Gareth Bale’s overhead kick against Liverpool in the Champions League final was also a contender for the award, along with Cristiano Ronaldo’s similarly acrobatic effort against his now current club Juventus.

Liverpool took to social media to congratulate their Egyptian star, while releasing a video showing every angle of his Merseyside derby strike.
