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

It has been claimed that the FIFA Puskas award lost credibility after Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah secured the 2018 edition of the prestigious title.

The FIFA Puskas Award rewards the best goal scored between 3 July 2017 and 15 July 2018.

The Egyptian star curled the ball past Everton's Jordan Pickford in the first half of the Derby, a game which ended 1-1 as Wayne Rooney's penalty earned the visitors a point.

Salah received the award at an event gala in London tonight, beating off competition from Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale who both landed stunning bicycle-kick goals.

The Egypt worldwide triumphed over nominees including Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale for his sensational overhead kick in the final of the Champions League.

Now with Real Madrid, the 26-year-old Courtois joked before his award was announced that Federation Internationale de Football Association should also hand out a save-of-the-year prize.

I hadn't won any tournaments that they can remember so I think this will be a little bit different for them. Up next, Woods will compete for the U.S. team in the Ryder Cup in France, beginning on September 28.

And Salah's Liverpool team-mate Milner joined in on the trolling.

Salah also scored memorable goals last season against Manchester City, Watford and Tottenham.

A great goal undoubtedly, but was it really worthy of the Puskas Award?

"Salah for best goal?"

'I have to thank everyone who voted for me.

While scooping one gong, Salah missed out on the Best Player award, which went to Real Madrid's Luka Modric.
