Kekana has been nominated for his long-range goal against Cameroon from 26 March in his best David Beckham impression.

The Mamelodi Sundowns star is up against the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar. The Argentine has been selected for his superb free-kick against the United States at the 2016 Copa America, while Neymar is in the running for his strike after flicking the ball over an opponent against Villarreal in November 2015.

Saul Niguez's superb solo goal forr Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich will also post tough competition for Kekana.

Here are all 10 nominees:

Neymar (Barcelona)

Marlone (Corinthians)

Hal Robson-Kanu (Wales)

Daniuska Rodriguez (Venezuela)

Simon Skrabb (Finland)

Lionel Messi (Argentina)

Saul Niguez (Atletico Madrid)

Mohd Faiz Subri (Pulai Pinang)

Hlompho Kekana (South Africa)

Mario Gaspar (Spain)

Fans around the globe can now vote for their 2016 Goal of the Year after FIFA selected the 10 nominees from thousands of goals scored between 30 September 2015 and 30 September 2016.

The three finalists to follow 2015 winner Brazilian Wendell Lira will be announced on 2 December. Every South African football fan can vote for Kekana here: http://www.fifa.com/the-best-fifa-football-awards/puskas-award/index.html

Just logged my vote for Bra Hlompho's goal. I encourage everyone else to do likewise. In an ideal world Kekana's goal would win, as it is a one of a kind. However as this is a popularity contest and the likes of Messi & Neymar are far more popular it obviously giving them a significant advantage.
