ZURICH (AP) - Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Neymar are among 10 candidates in FIFA's Puskas Award for best goal of the year.
FIFA says Ibrahimovic was nominated for his long-range bicycle kick against England in an exhibition last November.
Neymar was selected for his right-foot shot for Brazil against Japan in the Confederations Cup in June. Neymar won the award two years ago for a solo goal for Santos.
Other nominees include Udinese forward Antonio Di Natale and Lisa De Vanna for New Jersey-based National Women's Soccer League club Sky Blue.
The list was proposed by FIFA's soccer committee and France Football magazine.
Online voting until Dec. 9 decides the three finalists.
The winner will be announced Jan. 13.
