Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has made the three-goal shortlist for FIFA’s 2017 Puskas Award.

The 31-year-old is up against teenager Deyna Castellanos and keeper Oscarine Masuluke for the “most beautiful goal of the season” after his strike against Crystal Palace in January.

Giroud produced an improvised scorpion kick which went in off the crossbar in the Gunners’ 2-0 win over Palace on New Year’s Day.
