Carli Lloyd among nominees for FIFA Puskas Award of the best goal of 2015.
The 50-yard shot scored by Carli Lloyd for USA against Japan during the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015 final has been nominated for FIFA Puskas Award.
The stunning striked sealed Carli Lloyd’s hat-trick at the Final in Canada, all but securing the Americans’ third FIFA Women’s World Cup. After a quick touch around her defender, Lloyd looked up and spotted Ayumi Kaihori well off her line and the Japan goalkeeper could only get a flailing fingertip to the long-range drive that settled in off the post.
