Mohamed Salah wins FIFA Puskas award for goal against Everton last season

Watch Salah's goal vs. Everton from a few more angles. It wasn't enough for Liverpool on the day as they drew the match 1-1 at Anfield, but Salah admitted he was delighted to pick up the award.

'I have to thank everyone who voted for me.

Salah scored 44 goals for the Reds last season, including a record-breaking 32 in the Premier League, and it was one of these league goals that won Salah the award for the best strike of the season.

Bale's overhead kick against Liverpool in the Champions League Final was shortlisted for the award, while Ronaldo was also nominated for his acrobatic goal against Juventus in the same competition.


James Rodriguez, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Neymar are among the other star names from the sport to have been awarded the Puskas prize in their careers.

Meanwhile, former Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois won the goalkeeper of the year prize, beating Leicester's Kasper Schmeichel and Hugo Lloris of Tottenham Hotspur and World Cup-winning France.

The Puskás Award is decided by a fan vote, who choose the best goal out of a shortlist of 10 picked by Federation Internationale de Football Association legends.
