Pavard wins 2018 World Cup best goal award

France defender, Benjamin Pavard’s stunning strike in his country’s 4-3 Second Round win against Argentina has been voted as the best goal of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
The goal was selected in an online poll where over three million FIFA.com users casted their votes.
Pavard’s impressive strike was picked ahead of Nigeria forward Ahmed Musa’s second goal against Iceland and 16 other sublime goals scored in Russia.
The 22-year-old released a powerful shot with the outside of his foot which sailed into the net to make the scoreline 2-2.
“The ball bounced up as it came to me. I didn’t even think about it. I just tried to get over it and keep it down,” Pavard told FIFA.com after France’s Round of 16 thriller with Argentina.
“I was trying to hit it in the direction it came from, which is what the strikers always tell me. I didn’t think it over, and when it went in I just felt so happy.”
