FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017
In-form Arp's goal voted India 2017's best
06 Nov 2017
With a record 183 goals scored at the FIFA U17-World Cup India 2017, the process of selecting the best was not easy.
Ultimately, it came down to FIFA.com's users - selecting from a shortlist of ten - and you voted in your thousands to award the honour to Jann-Fiete Arp.
The highly rated Germany striker earned the nod for a wonderful effort in his team's 4-0 Round of 16 victory over Colombia. It showcased pace, power, persistence and, finally, a touch of panache as Arp closed down a defender and robbed him of possession before racing towards goal and dinking a delicate chip over the advancing keeper.
It was Arp's second of the match, and his fourth of a productive tournament that ended with him having scored five goals in as many appearances. The 17-year-old has also maintained his fine form since returning from India, making two outings for Hamburg's first team - and scoring each time.
Second place in the Goal of the Tournament vote went to USA's Tim Weah for his stunning long-range strike against Paraguay, while Sergio Gomez's piledriver for Spain against Iran took third.
