Sandra Owusu-Ansah, one of Ghana’s topmost football exports in recent years has been nominated for the Puskás Awards.

Owusu-Ansah was born on 29 January 2000 in Kumasi, the capital city of Ashanti Region to Kofi Owusu Ansah and Madam Yaa Pokuaa. She attended T.I. Ahmadiyya Senior High School, Kumasi for her secondary school education.

She was a member of the school’s football team and started her professional career playing for the U17 national football team. Now, she plays as a forward for Serbian Women’s Super League side ZFK Spartak Subotica and the Ghana women’s national football team.

The FIFA Puskás Award named in honour of Ferenc Puskás, the striker of Real Madrid during the late 1950s and the 1960s is given to the player judged to have scored the most beautiful goal, regardless of championship, gender or nationality. The award was established in 2009, when the shortlist of ten nominees was announced. 

A list of eleven candidates is drawn up by an experts’ panel. The winner of the Award will be selected by an international jury comprising, on the one hand, a panel of FIFA Legends and, on the other hand, fans from all over the world registered on FIFA.com. The winners of all of the awards will be revealed at The Best FIFA Football Awards in Zurich on 17 January 2022.

Sandra Owusu-Ansah’s goal against Kumasi Sports Academy Ladies in the Ghana Women’s Premier League is her ticket to the 2021 FIFA Puskas Award.

She is in the running alongside Luis Díaz, Gauthier Hein, Érik Lamela, Valentino Lazaro, Riyad Mahrez, Vangelis Pavlidis, Daniela Sánchez, Patrik Schick, Mehdi Taremi and Caroline Weir for the award.
