Agyemang-Badu's goal nominated for Fifa Goal of the Year Award

Posted On Wednesday, 14th November 2012

Agyemang-Badu celebrates his sensational strike for the Black Stars in the 2012 Nations Cup in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea

Fifa have shortlisted Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu’s goal for Ghana against Guinea in the 2012 Nations Cup for the Puskas Goal of the Year Award.

The 21-year-old is battling nine other nominees including; Brazilian wunderkind Neymar, Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao, legend Lionel Messi and six other players for the award.

The ball-battling workaholic midfielder scored the opening goal for the Black Stars in the 28th minute with a ferocious drive at Stade de Franceville in a Group game that ended one-all.

Badu latched onto a Samuel Inkoom pass from inside of inside the box before blasting a 25 yards powerful drive home for Ghana.

Fifa have selected the top ten goals within the 2012 calender year and the players with the highest votes will win the award.

“This is a big recognition from Fifa and I’m very excited about it and I hope I win,” Badu told Ghanasoccernet.com

Brazil’s Neymar won the award last year.

    Wow, great one…
    I hope he wins.

  2. Robb says:

    Everybody knows they wouldn’t give it to an African player. It’s business as usual.
    Since Georgia Weah won, no African is good enough for FIFA although we have produced quality players.

  3. Kay says:

    May be they felt they made a mistake of given George Weah the big one.
    Let’s keep our fingers crossed Africa might win this goal “thing”.
    Badu is known by FIFA for scoring that final penalty that gave Africa our first U2O World Cup.

    Good luck to Badu. I voted for him already. Guys vote for him here http://www.fifa.com/ballondor/puskasaward/video=1846803/index.html
