On 28 February 2023, the FIFA Awards ceremony saw Poland's disabled player Marcin Olesky voted Goal of the Year, with a side-footed goal being awarded the Puskás Prize. Looking back the first winner was Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese star from Real Madrid FC, whose winning goal was: a stunning 40-metre superb shot for Manchester United in the Champions League quarter-final away to Porto on 15 April 2009.Manchester United jersey
But the most unexpected thing of all was that on the star-studded stage of the FIFA annual awards ceremony, a handsome man with one amputated leg, Marcin Olesky of Poznanvarta, held the trophy in both hands, looking from side to side, slightly nervous and nervous, until the big screen showed the spectacular reverse hook and he smiled broadly before accepting the trophy, the symbol of The Puskás award, symbolising the best goal of the year in world football, and those guests who were on stage to give him applause and tribute turned out to be Messi, Mbappe, Casemiro, Ashraf and Richarlison ......
Polish disabled footballer Oleksiy won the FIFA Puskás Award, also known as the Goal of the Year, for his spectacular upside-down goal in his country's amputee football league. This is the first time a disabled footballer has won this award and the first time a Polish player has made history by winning this award.
Oleksiy broke down in tears as he accepted the award at the ceremony in Paris, beating out other finalists including France's Kylian Mbappe and Brazil's Richarlison, both of whom had outstanding performances at last year's World Cup.Clubs jersey
Oleksy's stunning reverse hook goal, scored against Stal Rzeszów in Warta Poznań in the Polish Amputee Football Super League last November, was a spectacular and extremely difficult goal, especially for disabled athletes who have to run with crutches, but Oleksy was able to replicate it perfectly, something that is not easy to achieve for the average footballer. The goal was an upside down shot.
