Zlatan Ibrahimovic Wins 2013 FIFA Puskas Award For This Goal Against England [VIDEO]

ZLATAN Zlatan Ibrahimovic Wins 2013 FIFA Puskas Award For This Goal Against England [VIDEO]

Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been named the winner of the 2013 FIFA Puskas Award for the best goal of the year.

The incredible overhead kick was one of several spectacular moments produced for club and country over recent seasons, and rounded off his hat-trick in a 4-2 friendly win in Stockholm. Even by Ibrahimovic’s standards, the scissors kick he sent flashing into the net from 30 yards, adjusting to meet a clearing header by Joe Hart, was something truly extraordinary. Few would have even attempted it, far less executed it to perfection, with the ball sent the ball looping beyond the despairing English defenders.

Congratulations to Zlatan on receiving the award.

    This is joking by fifa. This goal was scored november 2012 and yet they awarded in 2013.what that means the awards are not only what happened 2013 but also 2012 so its better they say goal of the 2012/2013.

    It was an incredible goal BUT was scored in a friendly. I would think that an award should be given for feats performed during competitions that count instead of warm-ups.
