Puskas Award 2021 finalists announced: The three finalists for the 2021 FIFA Puskas Award have been named, with Erik Lamela’s north London derby ‘Rabona’ for Spurs against Arsenal among the designations.
Patrik Schick’s most of the way line strike for the Czech Republic against Scotland at Euro 2020 is additionally a last competitor
As is Mehdi Taremi’s wonderful overhead kick for Porto in a Champions League attach with Chelsea is the third and last passage.
Son Heung-min brought home the 2020 Puskas Award after his great independent objective in Tottenham’s 5-0 win over Burnley in the 2019/20 season, while any semblance of Neymar, Mohamed Salah, Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are among the high-profile names to have won the gong previously.
The champ will be chosen by a board of footballing legends and fans enlisted on FIFA’s site and reported at the FIFA Best Awards on 17 January.
Here is a glance at the last three passages
1. Erik Lamela vs Arsenal
Erik Lamela didn’t score a ton of objectives in his eight years at Tottenham, yet the greater part of them were really vital.
His saucy ‘Rabona’ exertion away at unpleasant adversaries Arsenal was the second that he scored in the lilywhite of Spurs, putting them an objective up at the Emirates Stadium.
In classic Lamela fashion, he wound up getting sent off and Tottenham lost the derby.
2. Patrick Schick vs scottland
The dauntlessness for Schick to score from the midway line against a Scotland side playing on home soil at their first significant competition in north of twenty years was unadulterated *chef’s kiss*.
No offense to goalkeeper David Marshall – a Premier League Years symbol by his own doing – however seeing him tumbling into his own net attempting to have a hand on Schick’s chance and afterward stalling out in said net was exceptionally entertaining.
3. Mehdi Taremi vs chelsea
At the point when 90min’s Matt O’Connor-Simpson positioned every one of the 11 candidates for the Puskas Award back in November, Taremi’s deliciously specialized overhead kick just positioned in fifth.
We’re not saying FIFA are off-base, yet with Porto previously crashing out of the Champions League paying little mind to this strike, it felt somewhat immaterial and was discounted appropriately.
Whatever. Scarcely a decisive circumstance and the strike was beautiful. Nicely done, Mehdi.
