Mohamed Salah scored some sublime goals for Liverpool during the 2017-18 season.

The Egyptian international only moved to Anfield from Roma last summer but he swiftly became one of Jurgen Klopp’s most important players as he netted 44 goals in all competitions.

It is no surprise, then, that the 26-year-old was nominated for the FIFA Puskas award, but the goal selected raised a few eyebrows.

During the Best FIFA Football Awards 2018 on Monday evening, Salah’s strike against Everton in the Premier League last season was named goal of the year.

After shrugging off a couple of defenders, the Liverpool star curled the ball into the top corner, and even though it was an impressive goal, it is difficult to understand why it would be deemed the best of the football calendar.

Some Liverpool fans argued that it was not even Salah’s best goal of the season, let alone the standout one in football that year.

Plenty of supporters took to Reddit to question the decision, while others found it highly amusing.
