Sevilla winger Érik Lamela has been named as the Fifa Puskás Award winner for 2021.
The Argentine scored an astonishing rabona goal against Arsenal in an English Premier League match last season, and he beat competition from Patrick Schick and Mehdi Taremi to win the award for the most pleasing goal in a calendar year.

Lamela was however sent off during the match in which Spurs lost 2-1 to their London rivals.
the 29-year-old, who joined Sevilla during the summer, replaces former teammate Heung-min Son as the recipient of the award.
