PETALING JAYA: Faiz Subri has made Malaysia proud.
The 29-year-old created history this morning when he was named the winner of the Puskas Award for the best goal at the Best FIFA Football Awards 2016 in Zurich. He is the first Asian to win the award.
Faiz’s physics-defying goal in the 4-1 win against Pahang in a Super League match at the City Stadium in Georgetown on Feb 16 last year garnered 59.46% online votes. He finished way ahead of the other two finalists.
