Goal by Mexican Daniela Sánchez nominated for the Puskas Award

Daniela Sánchez is a player for Querétaro and her goal against San Luis has crossed borders, as she has been nominated for the Puskas Award for the best goal of the year.

The Mexican’s goal has been included among the nominees for this award, which will be presented on January 17 at a virtual ceremony in Zurich, Switzerland, as part of the FIFA The Best awards.

Erik Lamela’s rabona for Tottenham in the North London derby and Luis Díaz’s Chilean for Colombia in the Copa América are among the goals postulated.

Patrick Schick’s definition from 45 meters for the Czech Republic also stands out. That goal in a match against Scotland was awarded as the best of Euro 2020. The forward finished first with his left foot from near the center circle and the ball took a warped effect. The shot caught goalkeeper David Marshall ahead of the game, who desperately ran backward and was eventually caught in his own net.

Díaz scored as a Chilean in the match against Brazil in the group stage of the continental tournament. She is not the only Chilean on the list of 11 nominated goals, as one by Iranian striker Mehdi Taremi was included for Porto in the Champions League.

The list also included long-distance goals in the women’s leagues in Ghana and England, the work of Sandra Owusu-Ansah and Caroline Weir.

The best goal will be selected by an international jury made up of a panel of retired footballers and fans from around the world.
