Although the curtain came down on the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Dubai 2009 over two weeks ago, for Dejan Stankovic, a member of the Swiss side that finished runners-up, the plaudits keep on coming. Not only did the prolific striker pocket the top-scorer’s award, but he also scored the best goal on the sands of Jumeirah Beach, as voted by you the users of His bicycle-kick against Russia in the quarter-finals was the goal in question, garnering three times as many votes as the second-placed strike – that of Brazil’s Andre in the final.

Congratulations Stankovic!
