Earlier on in the week we flagged up the 10 nominees for the 2012 Puskas Award.

For anyone who is still unaware of the award, for the past three years FIFA have been running a competition to find the best goal of the year by hand-picking the greatest goals they believe have been scored in the past 12 months throughout world football.

This year’s top 10 is again a sublime selection of golazos, and for your enjoyment all 10 goals can now be seen in GIF form courtesy of the excellent Tumblr blogger ICantFeelMyArms.
