The List of Puskas Award Nominees 2017 features brilliant goals scored in the 2016/2017 season. The PUSKAS award is simply the best goal scorer award of the year. This list includes goals scored with spectacular techniques. Furthermore, the award is gender-inclusive i.e both male and female can feature on the list.
This year’s nominations feature a single female: Deyna Castellanos. She is a Venezuelan. She scored her goal in an Under-17 Women’s World Cup game against Cameroon. The goal was scored from the kick off circle immediately after Cameroon scored a die minute equalizer. So, the distance and technique involved got her into the List Of Puskas Award Nominees 2017.
Mario Mandzukic’s stunning overhead kick in the Champions League final over Real Madrid also featured. After receiving a long pass from teammate Gonzalo Higuain, he chested up the ball and gave an unexpected overhead kick that left Keylor Navas with no chance. 1-1. Madrid went on to win the match 4-1.
