The list included Atletico Madrid's Luis Suarez and Tottenham Hotspurs' Son Heung-min, who coincidentally scored their nominated goals on the same day (December 7). Son's solo effort pulled a stunner against Burnley, whereas, Luis Suarez scored a stunning backheel chip for former club Barcelona against Mallorca.

Both stars are leading the list for their stunning goals, but they face stiff competition as the list includes many great goals. 

"The winner of the FIFA Puskas Award will be selected by an international jury comprising a panel of Fifa legends and by the fans from all over the world registered on www.fifa.com. Each of the two groups of voters within the jury has the same electoral weight," FIFA said in a statement.
