Mohamed Salah wins the FIFA Puskas Award

Salah curls the ball around Williams for his award-winning goal- but some have argued it was not even the Egyptian’s best goal of the season Mohamed Salah Wins FIFA Puskas Award For Soccer’s Best Goal Of 2017-18

The award had been expected to be awarded to Gareth Bale for his overhead kick in the Champions League final against Liverpool, or Cristiano Ronaldo's spectacular effort against Juventus.

Salah beat the two former Real Madrid teammates to the trophy this year, thanks to his sublime curler in the Merseyside derby last season.

Normally, Salah's snub would have been accepted and people would simply accept that the players who did make it were simply better or had a better season.

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

While the award was a consolation for Salah's surprise exclusion from the FIFPro World11 team, even a teammate of the Egypt worldwide question the selected strike.

He also joked about giving the Japanese delegation a fright when they walked into a meeting room in the middle of a nappy change. Monday (New York time) was the first United Nations visit for New Zealand's first baby Neve Te Aroha Gayford.

The award was opened up to a fan vote, which clearly worked in Salah's favour, and his goal against Everton was named as the best goal over the past 12 months.

When told about Salah's start to this season compared to last, boss Jurgen Klopp sarcastically said: "Wow, that's a crisis".

The Egyptian was also not included in the FIFPro World XI, with the likes of Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe, Eden Hazard and Lionel Messi being named to the squad instead.

All three enjoyed great World Cup campaigns, with Courtois helping Belgium to a third-place finish.

Numerous arguments revolved around Mohamed Salah.
