Ten wonderful goals make up the shortlist for this year's FIFA Puskás Award, but which player is worthy of joining Cristiano Ronaldo, Hamit Altintop, Neymar and Miroslav Stoch in clinching the award? It's up to you to decide. Cast your vote on FIFA.com or www.francefootball.fr to crown this year's goal king or queen. FIFA.com now takes a closer look at each of the ten fantastic strikes in contention for the 2013 prize.
The match between Sweden and England on 14 November 2012 was already sure to be a remarkable occasion even before anybody had stepped on the pitch. The Blagult were opening their new national stadium and Steven Gerrard was making his 100th appearance for England. Both of those momentous milestones would, however, be overshadowed by an individual performance, capped by a remarkable goal, from the man known by millions simply as 'Zlatan'.
Ibrahimovic opened the scoring before Danny Welbeck equalised and Steven Caulker put the visitors ahead. From then on in, it was the Ibra show, as the Paris Saint-Germain forward smashed a leveller before putting the hosts ahead with a stunning free-kick. The best was still yet to come.
With the clock ticking down on an already-thrilling spectacle, a hopeful long pass was punted forward by Anders Svensson. The ball bounced once before England's goalkeeper Joe Hart rushed out and headed away, but achieving little distance.
Hart's clearance was falling to the ground as Ibrahimovic, without even looking over his shoulder, acrobatically flung his body in the air and executed a volleyed overhead effort from 30 yards which soared into the Solna evening sky. The ball looped up over the back-pedalling Hart and defender Ryan Shawcross before landing over the goal-line. There was a millisecond of disbelief before the stadium erupted, with Ibrahimovic wheeling away and tearing off his shirt in celebration.
The Sweden No10's opposing captain Gerrard called it "the best goal I've ever seen" and the Swedish Language Council added the verb 'To Zlatan' (zlatanera, from the French word zlataner) to their national dictionary later in 2012, defining the word as: 'to dominate on and off the field'.
You can watch Ibrahimovic's magnificent effort and the nine other FIFA Puskás Award candidates on FIFA's YouTube channel. The three most popular goals will be announced on 9 December, after which voting will begin again to decide which player will lift the prestigious trophy at the FIFA Ballon d'Or Gala on 13 January.
