2. Mohd Faiz Subri, who created history by becoming the first ever Malaysian to win the prestigious FIFA Puskas Award
His swerving “knuckleball” goal against Pahang in the Malaysian Super League match was so spectacular that it catapulted him to international recognition.
He received his nomination from FIFA last November alongside other footballing greats like Lionel Messi and Neymar.
The 29-year-old footballer, who adores The Beautiful Game, defeated Brazil’s Marlone and Daniuska Rodriguez of Venezuela to clinch the award for goal of the year.
