One of the most amazing goals you will ever see has been nominated and considered a contender for this year’s FIFA Puskas award.
On April 28, 2018, the relatively unknown Riley McGree scored a goal that instantly put him in a category containing the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Gareth Bale, and more.
The goal in question, which he scored while playing for A-League outfit Newcastle Jets, really does have to be seen to be believed.
Picking up the ball on the bounce just behind him, McGree attempted a frankly ridiculous scorpion kick and amazingly, was able to leave the opposition keeper stranded for a goal he will never forget.
McGree HAS to win this year's Puskas award. Yeah, Ronaldo and Bale both scored worldie overhead kicks, and De Arrascaeta's volley was 10/10, but I have NEVER seen a goal like Riley McGree's. A-League or not, unintentional or not, this wins it surely. pic.twitter.com/E6SG6Ofe1A
