Masuluke Looking To Make History At FIFA Awards

Oscarine Masuluke Could Make History With His FIFA Puskas Nomination

By Soccer Laduma - Oct 12, 2017 07:32 PM
Baroka FC’s Oscarine Masuluke is already the first African to make it into the top three for FIFA’s Puskas Award, now he’s hoping to become the first African to win it.
 
See the other South African nominees and where they finished above
 
Numerous African footballers – including three from South Africa, have been nominated for the prestigious award in the past, however, Masuluke is the first one that has qualified for the final round of public voting. His incredible overhead kick against Orlando Pirates went viral the night it happened.
 
 
The Baroka man will be up against Olivier Giroud of Arsenal, and teenage Venezuelan starlet, Deyna Castellanos, with many around the country urging fans to vote for their compatriot ahead of the ceremony in London later this month.
 
Masuluke is also the first South African to be recognised for his efforts at club level, with the other three – Katlego Mphela, Siphiwe Tshabalala and Hlompho Kekana receiving their nominations for goals scored for Bafana Bafana.
 
Mphela’s goal came against Spain in the 2009 Confederations Cup, Tshabalala’s World Cup 2010 opener got him into the top 10 and Kekana’s thunderbolt against Cameroon saw him get nominated for the 2016 award last year. 
 
 
See the former South African entrants below:

Kekana - 
 
Do you think Masuluke can win the award?

@vhivha...There is no medicine for stupidity. I see that vote for your neighbour's son who is in the same category as your son because he is more brighter in complexion than your child. SHAME ON YOU....YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO THIS COUNTRY. ITS NOT ABOUT WHO IS THE BEST BUT SUPPORTING YOUR OWN.

@louismakolobe Good point mate...Tshabalala's one was not even fit to contest good goals scored in MDC and i saw some great crackers better than that....actually, this has made me scratch my head time and again, thinking as to who make the selectors panel? ...do they own some houses near Naturena or something!?

Hlompho Kekana! That was wow! Wondering why that did not win? Never seen one of its kind before, apart from the Egyptian's goalkeeper scoring against Baloyi....And if Oscarine's doesn't win...i will sum it all up that FIFA is unethical and need some exorcism of some sought!

Mara, Orlando Pirates does not have defenders, they were found wanting, smiling for the camera. There are no lessons learnt for the goal Masuluke scored against orlando pirates. Sleeping on duty is a dismissal offense
