The best goal of 2016 has come from the Malaysian Super League.

FIFA have given Malaysian footballer Mohd Faiz Subri the Puskas Award for his stunning free kick against Pahang.

The diminutive No. 13, a prolific goalscorer in the Malaysian Super League, hammered his effort goalwards, struck in a 'knuckleball' manner, producing a swerve so wicked that goalkeeper Mohd Nasril Nourdin stood no chance.

Subri released a statement on Twitter, still in utter disbelief.
