Mohd Faiz Subri

From over 35 yards out, the attacking midfielder for Penang FA swung his right foot and defied physics. His strike saw the ball change direction and swerve away from the goalkeeper and into the side of the net. A feat that was honoured with the FIFA Puskas award for goal of the year, making Faiz the first Asian to win the award.

Did you know: His swerving free kick received almost 60 per cent of the popular vote at the awards.
