Olivia Jiménez Earns FIFA ‘Goal of the Year’ Nomination

"Running at full pace from her own half, Olivia Jimenez unleashed a corker of a goal from 45 metres out against Switzerland in the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Japan 2012," is how FIFA described the goal that earned Mexico’s Jiménez a nomination for this year’s Goal of the Year, the Puskás Award.

Olivia joins an elite group of 10, and is the only female to be nominated.
