FIFA Nominated Some Incredible Goals For Its Annual Puskas Award

Because we all know FIFA is the most democratic and fair institutions in the world, soccer’s governing body lets you, the fans, vote every year for the most aesthetically pleasing goal scored each season. FIFA released its 2016-17 FIFA Puskás Award nominees chosen by a panel of "experts" on Friday and it’s time to vote.

Unfortunately, because FIFA doesn't believe in fair play, you have to go to YouTube to watch the nominees instead of just viewing them on our wonderful website. So check them out here.

If Atletico Madrid Land Diego Costa Then The Spice Will Flow

Atletico Madrid defeated Athletic Bilbao 2-1 at the San Mames on Tuesday to continue their unbeaten start to league play after five matches. But anemic draws against Girona and Valencia find them trailing Barcelona by four points, and you can’t fight the feeling that despite the continued excellence of players like Koke and Antoine Griezmann, there’s a Diego Costa-sized hole in this Atleti side.

Alex Morgan Hammers A Sensational Strike For The USWNT Against New Zealand

The USWNT steamrolled New Zealand 5-0 at Nippert Stadium in Cincinnati last night in front of an announced crowd of 30,596. Goals from Lindsey Horan, Mallory Pugh, Lynn Williams and a brace for Alex Morgan saw the States claim their second victory over the Kiwis in the space of five days following their 3-1 win in Commerce City, Colorado last Friday.

James Rodriguez Records First Goal And Assist For Bayern In Win Over Schalke

Bayern Munich defeated Schalke 3-0 on Tuesday with James Rodriguez factoring heavily in his first Bundesliga start for the Bavarians. Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring from the spot, and James put Bayern up 2-0 before halftime with his first goal for the club. James then put the finishing touches on the victory with a fantastic feed for Arturo Vidal in the 75th minute.

French Women Show Off Brilliant Flair In Goal Vs. Spain

The French men’s national team has been looking better and better recently, rocketing up to No. 8 in the most recent FIFA World Rankings. The women, though, are still better, as evidenced by a Eugenie Le Sommer goal in a friendly against Spain on Monday.

Les Bleues are currently ranked No. 4 in the world and dispatched No. 17 Spain 3-1 thanks to a gorgeous bit of football between Ouleymata Sarr and Le Sommer. 

Gareth Bale’s 73-Yard Sprint To Goal Clocked At Ridiculous Top Speed

Gareth Bale has done it again. Perhaps best known for his stunning sprint against Barcelona in the 2014 Copa del Rey Final (one that had Usain Bolt saying: “It’s a goal any sprinter in the world would like to score one day. He’s the fastest footballer in the world at the moment.”), Bale has scored another scorching effort for Real Madrid. 

PSG’s ‘MCN’ Dissolves Into Ego Battle Between Team Neymar And Team Cavani

Let’s be honest, we’ve probably just witnessed the most calamitous weekend Paris Saint-Germain will suffer all season in France’s Ligue 1. No PSG player was able to get on the scoresheet in their match against Lyon on Sunday, but the Parisian club still managed to win 2-0 by forcing two own goals to maintain their perfect start to the season.

In those three matches, Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero has provided five goals and two assists, including a hat trick and an assist in Saturday’s 6-0 hammering of Watford at Vicarage Road.
