The award was handed out at a glitzy bash at London's Royal Festival Hall with the great and the good from the footballing world in attendance for the Best FIFA Football Awards.

The match eventually ended 1-1 with Wayne Rooney equalising from the penalty spot after a controversial decision from referee Craig Pawson. The 26-year-old netted 44 goals in all competitions for Liverpool last season and was also nominated for the FIFA Best Men's Player of 2018 award.

Named for Hungary legend Ferenc Puskas, the Puskas Award has been presented to the scorer of the "most beautiful" goal of the year on an annual basis since 2009.
