Benjamin Pavard’s stunning strike for France against Argentina has been voted as the World Cup 2018 best goal.
Benjamin Pavard, who showed a superb technique to fire into the top corner, received the most votes cast by three million fans on the Fifa website.
Pavard levelled the round-of-16 game for France against Argentina by striking the ball with the outside of his foot from distance, and the ball curled into the net.
France went on to beat Argentina 4-3. France went on to win the tournament, beating Croatia in the final.
After winning the award, Pavard tweeted: “Proud, honoured, and always a little hard to believe,” Thank you all for your posts.”
Quintero’s clever slow-rolling free-kick under a jumping Japanese wall of defenders was voted in second place.
Luka Modric’s long-range goal for Croatia against Argentina in the group stage was also voted into third place.
