Mohamed Salah wins the FIFA Puskas award for his Premier League goal against Everton last season.

The FIFA Puskas Award rewards the best goal scored between 3 July 2017 and 15 July 2018.

Salah's solo effort beat the likes of Gareth Bale's Champions League final overhead kick and Ricardo Quaresma's incredible effort against Spain at the World Cup.

The Egypt global triumphed over nominees including Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale for his sensational overhead kick in the final of the Champions League.

Numerous arguments revolved around Mohamed Salah.

The award was opened up to a fan vote, which clearly worked in Salah's favour, and his goal against Everton was named as the best goal over the past 12 months.

It is notable that even on the Right, there are concerns about a Trump administration crackdown on social media businesses. It also frames Trump's bullshit claims of anti-conservative bias as having something to do with anti-competition law.

Salah also scored memorable goals last season against Manchester City, Watford and Tottenham.

Some fans, however, chose to mock the decision through jokes referring to the Liverpool fan who started a petition demanding UEFA punish Sergio Ramos for hurting Mohamed Salah in a challenge during the Champions League final in May.

Others failed to see the amusing side, with former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ryan Mason claiming the award lacked "credibility".

"But I'm very happy and very proud, thank you, everyone, who voted for me".

Fifa's "The Best" awards ceremony took place on Monday night and, as usual, there was plenty of room for debate when all was said and done.
