Which effort will come out on top? The Manchester City winger and the former Tottenham star are in the mix for the prize

Riyad Mahrez and Erik Lamela are among the nominees for the FIFA Puskas Award 2021, which will be given to the player deemed to have scored the best goal of the year.

The prestigious individual prize has been given to some of the top players in the world over the years, including the likes of Mohamed Salah, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Tottenham's Heung-min Son came out on top last year and his former team-mate Lamela is in the mix this time around alongside Manchester City's Mahrez, and they will also be up against more obscure entries from lesser-known competitions due to the diverse nature of the nomination process.
