Mo Salah wins FIFA Puskás Award

Mohamed Salah Wins FIFA Puskas Award For Soccer’s Best Goal Of 2017-18

Mohamed Salah's fine individual goal for Liverpool against Everton during the 2017/18 English Premier League season was voted for as the best in the World.

Salah's goal was - at least according to the majority of the 6,000-plus comments on Fifa's Youtube site showing the candidates - so average that it did not deserve to be on the original list, let alone the victor.

However, Salah and his fans will point to the fact that the award was voted for by football supporters on the official FIFA website, meaning it was ultimately the people's choice.

The award had been expected to be awarded to Gareth Bale for his overhead kick in the Champions League final against Liverpool, or Cristiano Ronaldo's spectacular effort against Juventus. What drugs is #FIFA on?

Salah was delighted to pick up the award, despite the controversy.
