'What is the FIFA Puskas Award?', you ask. Every year FIFA hands out the Puskas award to honor the most beautiful goal of the year. It is named in honor of the Ferenc Puskas, former Real Madrid and Hungary striker.
The first award was given out in 2009 to none other than Cristiano Ronaldo for his strike against Porto while playing for Manchester United. Lionel Messi and Neymar have garnered the most nominations since the award's inception with 5 each.
The nice thing about this award is that YOU get to vote for the winner. FIFA has narrowed down the list to the top 3 finalists and this is where you get to cast your vote if you are so inclined. Check out the video above and cast your vote by the January 9 deadline! Personally I think the free kick from Mohd Faiz Subri will win it.
UPDATE: Check out the winner of the 2016 Puskas Award
