Vote or Die: Essien up for FIFA goal of the year

New, comments

Michael Essien's oh-so-glorious volley against Barcelona is one of ten goals nominated for the FIFA Puskás Award, "bestowed upon the player from either the men’s or women’s game judged to have scored the best goal of the year."

The likes of Ronaldo, Torres, Iniesta (blah), Nilmar, Adebayor and Grafite -- a personal favorite -- among others, are also in the running. Stiff competition to be sure.

Voting closes Monday so be sure to get over to the FIFA's official web site to cast your's. Click here to do so.
