GEORGE TOWN, Oct 24 – Malaysia’s Faiz Subri, who won the 2016 Fifa Puskas award for goal of the year, said his wonder strike cannot be compared to Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud’s 2017 which has won FIFA’s Puskas Award for the best goal of 2016-17.
He said his physics-defying free kick and Giroud’s Scorpion kick were incomparable and fantastic in their own way. He said he cannot compare his goal with Giroud’s because his goal was from a dead ball (situation).
Giroud also presented the Fifa Puskas award on Monday for the best goal of the year for his stunning scorpion kick against Crystal Palace, at a star-studded Fifa awards show in London. Faiz lastly added that his and Giroud’s wonder goals may not be repeated or seen again.
On his future, Faiz said if Penang, who were relegated to the Premier League, offer him a new contract, he would remain with the island team. Otherwise, he has to look for another team to continue his career. — PN
