Andros Townsend’s wonder goal for Crystal Palace against Manchester City has been nominated for the 2019 FIFA Puskas Award.
Townsend’s finely-executed volley in the 3-2 win at the Etihad Stadium on December 22 is one of 10 in the running for the famed honour.
Among the contenders are Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s strike for LA Galaxy against Toronto FC and a Lionel Messi chipped effort at Real Betis.
All nominated goals were scored between July 16 2018 19 July 19 2019 and were chosen by a panel of FIFA and external football experts.
Vote for Townsend on the FIFA website and the top three will be then put to football Legends, who will decide the overall victor. The vote closes on September 1, 2019.
