FIFA Puskas Award 2021: Two Africans among the nominees

 

While all eyes are on the Ballon d'Or, FIFA has unveiled the eleven candidates for the 2021 Puskas Award. The award is given to the most beautiful goal of the year. Among these eleven players, there are two Africans: the Algerian Riyad Mahrez (Manchester City) and the Ghanaian Sandra Owusu Ansah (Supreme Ladies FC, Ghana then ZFK Spartak Subotica, Serbia).

To qualify for the Puskas Award, Riyad Mahrez scored a brilliant goal against Zimbabwe on 16 November 2020. A match counting towards the 2021 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.  As for Sandra Owusu Ansah, it was her goal against Kumasi Sports Academy Ladies FC that was chosen. It was on 8 May 2021 when she was still playing in the Ghanaian league.

Both are therefore in the running to succeed South Korean Son Heung-Min who won the trophy in 2020.
