Sandra Owusu-Ansah has been shortlisted for the prestigious FIFA Puskas Award which recognizes the best goals scored in a calendar year.

The Ghanaian player is on the list for her stunning strike in last season’s Women’s Premier League game between Supreme Ladies and Kumasi Sports Academy Ladies. She has since moved to Serbia and plays for ZFK Spartak Subotica.

The 21-year-old’s stunning effort is up against 10 other goals from across world football: Luis Diaz (for Colombia away to Brazil – Copa America), Gauthier Hein (for Auxerre away to Chamois Niortais – Ligue 2), Valentino Lazaro (for Borussia Mönchengladbach away to Bayer Leverkusen – Bundesliga), Riyad Mahrez (for Algeria away to Zimbabwe – Africa Cup of Nations qualifying), Sandra Owusu-Ansah (for Supreme Ladies away to Kumasi Sports Academy Ladies – Ghana Women’s Premier League), Vangelis Pavlidis (for Willem II versus Fortuna Sittard – Eredivisie), Daniela Sanchez (for Queretaro v Atletico de San Luis – Liga MX Femenil), Patrik Schick (Czech Republic versus Scotland – Euro 2020), Mehdi Taremi (for Porto away to Chelsea – Champions League) and Caroline Weir (Manchester City Women versus Manchester United Women – FA Women’s Super League).

The winner will be selected by an international jury comprising a panel of FIFA Legends and registered fans from all over the world on FIFA.com, and will be revealed at The Best FIFA Football Awards in Zurich on 17 January 2022.
