Your votes have been counted. It’s time to announce the Goal of the Tournament for the FIFA Interactive World Cup 2014!
Millions of gamers scored goals during qualification for the FIWC 2014, but only one can be crowned the Goal of the Tournament! The votes were unanimous with 24-year-old Daniel Angeles Lujan from Peru claiming 57 per cent of all votes for our six shortlisted goals. An honourable mention goes to Hassan Nouman who finished in second place with 37 per cent of all votes.
“Personally I felt so proud to help Peru add to the FIWC record books,” Daniel told FIFA.com. “I like it because it’s unusual,” he says of his award-winning goal. “It’s different than other good goals like a scissor kick, which is hard to accomplish but everyone wants to do.”
Lujan’s award-winning goalscorer was Marouane Fellaini in a Belgium-Borussia Dortmund match that ended with a 3-1 victory for the Red Devils. “I was winning so I felt confident to make some ‘joga bonito’ and to try and create a goal with a different style.” He said. “I got a throw-in in a dangerous position. I took it quickly and quickly passed to Marouane Fellaini. Then I tried to do something unusual in the small space and it worked. I felt like a beast and I screamed!”
