Beautiful Game

VIDEO: Here are the three 'most beautiful' goals scored in 2012*

*According to FIFA’s shortlist for the Puskas Award.

RADAMEL FALCAO, MIROSLAV Stoch and Neymar have been shortlisted for the FIFA Puskas Award for the “most beautiful goal of the year.”

By coincidence, the original 10-goal longlist was announced on the same day as Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s stunning overhead kick against England so that’s not eligible; neither is Philippe Mexes’ (even better?) effort against Anderlecht.

Still, these three aren’t bad.
