The Best FIFA Football Awards 2017

Giroud beat Deyna Castellanos of the Venezuela U17 women's team and South Africa goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke of Baroka FC to the award, which recognises the "most attractive goal of the season".

The France global saw off competition from Venezuela women's worldwide Deyna Castellanos and Baroka goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke with his stunning effort at Emirates Stadium on January 1.

The France international's incredible "scorpion kick" against Crystal Palace last season has been named as the best goal of the year, seeing off several other outstanding finishes throughout the course of 2017.

Masuluke's brilliant bicycle kick came against Orlando Pirates at Peter Mokaba Stadium in an Absa Premiership match in November a year ago.

"I'd vote for Oscarine Masuluke". "To go to London and meet some of the great soccer stars is a great achievement on its own".

Masuluke's has been endorsed by many people around the world including Olympic sprint legend Usain Bolt who recently said that he will vote for the goalkeeper. "It's not about me but my family, my country and the continent".

This year, Kevin-Prince Boateng also made the 10-man shortlist for the prize after his sublime strike for Las Palmas against Villarreal last term.
