Ibra’s Goal Too Late For FIFA Award

By November 15, 2012

Follow me on:

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his wonder goal against England a matter of hours too late to be considered for FIFA's award for best goal in 2012.

The list of 10 was announced on Wednesday, before Ibrahimovic scored this stunning overhead kick in Sweden's 4-2 friendly win that evening.

FIFA have confirmed that the goal will not be added to the list, but that it will be considered as a candidate for the 2013 award.

That award looks to be a foregone conclusion. For sheer audacity alone, Ibra wins hands down.
