Arsenal Forward Olivier Giroud is obviously not the most popular or productive player on the Gunners roster, but he is the victor of the FIFA Puskas Award. The third nominee, Venezuela's Deyna Castellanos, got 20.47%. I would like to congratulate the other nominees who scored unbelievable goals too and I would like to thank my team-mates, without them I couldn't score maybe this goal.
Ronaldo though, who was later in the evening crowned as the Best FIFA Men's Player, reserved special praise for Masuluke during the gala event. "Without them I can not score this goal".
With his struggling side trailing 1-0, the goalkeeper went up for a corner, and with his back to goal, demonstrated his agility by leaping to send a magnificent overhead kick past his opposite number Jackson Mabokgwane.
"He (usually) never goes forward and he tried an unbelievable goal, too", he added. "Incredible goal and celebration as well", the Tottenham Hotspur frontman said.
'Everything was ideal and I don't think I could do it again'.
"You could play 100 years and not come close to winning the award".
SAFA confirmed how Masuluke's goal did against some of the stars from big clubs from around the world.
