Has Boateng shot the most beautiful goal of the year?

With Eintracht Frankfurt, Kevin-Prince Boateng does not have too much to laugh. Nevertheless, he can hope for a personal award- and thus even out a Champions League finalist.

Kevin-Prince Boateng has already become an important man on the pitch for Eintracht Frankfurt despite joining the club in the off season. The brother of Jérôme Boateng also showed that he has something to offer in this category during his engagement in Spain. A goal from this time could now bring him a prestigious prize.

With the FIFA Puskás Award is given to the player who scored the most beautiful goal of the year. The legendary Hungarian midfielder Ferenc Puskás is the name of the trophy. A five-man jury has compiled a list of the ten most beautiful goals, on 23 October the winner is selected. In addition to the former German national player Celia Sasic, the jury includes Henrik Larsson, Pedrag Mijatovic, Alan Shearer and Abby Wambach.

Kevin-Prince-Boateng scored his nominated dream goal last October for his former club UD Las Palmas in the Spanish league against Villarreal. His team-mates combined into the penalty area and flanked the ball with the hoe to Boateng, who crossed the ball and volley to the corner.
