IT WASN’T JUST A FIRST for Malaysia, but also for Asia: Mohd Faiz Subri – the 29-year-old foot­baller from Pe­nang – took home FIFA’s pres­ti­gious Puskás Award for the best goal of 2016. Hav­ing re­ceived nearly 60 per­cent of the pop­u­lar vote for his free-kick in the Malaysian Su­per League match against Pa­hang last Fe­bru­ary, Faiz bested Corinthi­ans mid­fielder Mar­lone and Venezue­lan Da­niuska Ro­dríguez to clinch the award. Cris­tiano Ron­aldo, Zla­tan Ibrahi­mović and Ney­mar are among the win­ners for the Puskás award since its in­cep­tion in 2009.
