FIFA have announced the final three nominees for the 2017 FIFA Puskas Award. Find out if Baroka FC goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke made the cut here!

Tired of reading? Click through the mini-gallery above to see the final three nominees for the 2017 FIFA Puskas Award.

The shot-stopper was named as one of the 10 nominees for the 2017 World Goal of the Year for his last-minute bicycle kick against Orlando Pirates on 30 November 2016.

Masuluke's dramatic equaliser in his best Rivaldo impression has indeed made the final three, as confirmed by FIFA on their official website.

The South African will be up against goals from Olivier Giroud (Arsenal) and Deyna Castellanos (Venezuela Women's U17) for this year's Puskas Award.

Fans from all over the world can now once again vote for their favourite strike on FIFA's website until 23 October, when the winner will be announced during the FIFA awards ceremony in London.

Here are the final three goals that are up for the award:

Olivier Giroud (Arsenal)

Oscarine Masuluke (Baroka FC)

Deyna Castellanos (Venezuela Women's U17)

I dont think pirates supporters they going to vote against his cowkeeper in this competition because if Baroka keeper win which means their keeper does not deserve to wear No1 jersey!

The fact that Masuluke is a goal keeper, automatically his goal becomes a wonder, thus considering the time it was scored and the player's playing position. There is nothing to vote about he is the best. It can win even for the next four years if it is allowed to compete agai

According to me after what I've noticed on YouTube, Masuluke's goal stands a better chance. After more than 2000 views, Masuluke has only 60 dislikes compared to 80 dislikes of CASTELLANOS after same number of views. As for that lady's goal. She will come third. Her goal doesn't deserve either first or second spot. Only the poor goalkeeping that made it looks brilliant, hence 1000 views and +600 dislikes says it all.

Orlando Pirates players who donated this lousy goal should vote for Masuluke, his other votes should come from the entire Baroka fans, technical team, & Doctor, i know they have a classroom size fans nothing else, he is not going to win, his invitation is just a fluke to add numbers, watch this space!
