Giroud's scorpion kick makes FIFA Puskas Award final shortlist

Giroud's scorpion kick makes FIFA Puskas Award final shortlist

Olivier Giroud has been nominated for FIFA's Puskas Award, which goes to the scorer of the "most lovely goal of the season".

Baroka goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke will go up against Deyna Castellanos and Olivier Giroud for the Puskas Award.

It'll be sweet justice for the striker should he take home the award after being snubbed for Goal of the Month in England.

Windows Phone is Dead, Microsoft Confirms
Belfiore's tweets indicated that Microsoft can no longer survive in fierce competition against Apple's iOS and Google's Android. The inevitable has happened: Microsoft has effectively declared that Windows 10 Mobile is dead in the water .

But now Masuluke has already achieved global recognition, and now needs the people of Mzansi to vote in the second round until October 23, when the victor will be announced at The Best Fifa Football Awards 2017 in London.

Many local soccer fans felt Masuluke was robbed when he was beaten by a long curler by Simphiwe Tshabalala of Kaizer Chiefs for the PSL's Goal of the Season of the last campaign.

According to the Sportskeeda.com, the most popular inclusion in the list is Arsenal's Olivier Giroud who scored with a scorpion kick against Crystal Palace.

TOGETHER AGAIN?: The Packers could be closer to getting their starting offensive line back on the field at the same time. McCarthy said Montgomery did not take part in Thursday's team periods, meaning he's nearly surely out for Sunday.

The victor will be announced at a ceremony in London that evening.

Castellanos, also a finalist for The Best FIFA Women's Player 2017, earned recognition for her halfway line strike for Venezuela against Cameroon at the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup 2016.

Masuluke was nominated for his bicycle kick equaliser against Orlando Pirates last season.
