Mohamed Salah saw off strong competition notably from Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo to win The Puskas Award for best goal at Fifa’s The Best Awards in London on Monday
The Liverpool and Egypt forward bagged the awards for his strike against Everton, which saw him wriggle past three defenders before curling home.
Ten goals were nominated for the award, including strikes from Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Ricardo Quaresma, while Gareth Bale’s spectacular overhead kick in the Champions League Final was also among the nominees.
But Salah’s special goal against Liverpool’s local rivals was voted the most befitting of the award.
