during the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup Jordan 2016 Quarter Final match between Korea DPR and Ghana at Al Hassan International Stadium on October 13, 2016 in Irbid, Jordan.

Black Queens forward, Sandra Owusu-Ansah's worldie for Supreme Ladies against Kumasi Sports Academy has been nominated for the FIFA Puskas Award 2021.

The former Black Maidens attacker half volleyed from almost 30 yards to beat Kumasi Sports Academy's goalkeeper in a national women's league game in May this year.

Owusu-Ansah will compete for the top award with the likes of Tottenham's Erik Lamela and Algeria's Riyad Mahrez.

She becomes the only Ghanaian in running for a FIFA award in the 2021 calendar year.

Meanwhile, conspicuously missing is Yaw Yeboah's solo goal for Wisla Krakow against Gornik Lechzna in Polan.
