Puskas award: Arsenal star Olivier Giroud wins prestigious gong

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud won the FIFA Puskas award for the best goal of the year

OLIVIER GIROUD won the Puskas Award for best goal of the year at a star-studded bash in London.

The relatively unknown Masuluke came second for the award which was decided via public vote, getting 27.48% of the vote ahead of former Venezuelan Women's teenage sensation Deyna Castellanos who got 20.47% total votes.

Kane is yet to receive global recognition for his individual achievements in the game but was present at the Federation Internationale de Football Association player awards on Monday evening as Cristiano Ronaldo was named the world's best male player.

"I am delighted to receive this trophy in front of legends of football and would like to thank people who voted for me".

"I like Olivier Giroud's goal, but I have to give credit to the goalkeeper". I would like to congratulate the nominees who scored fantastic goals.

No, Oscarine Masuluke is not asking for an autograph there. "It was an incredible goal and the celebration matched it as well", he added.

The 24-year-old forward has been on fire for club and country this season, scoring 17 goals in all competitions, after lifting the Premier League Golden Boot two years on the bounce.

With his struggling side trailing 1-0, the goalkeeper went up for a corner, and with his back to goal, demonstrated his agility by leaping to send a magnificent overhead kick past his opposite number Jackson Mabokgwane.
