Marlone, Daniuska Rodriguez, Mohd Faiz Subri up for FIFA Puskas award

Corinthians attacking midfielder Marlone, Daniuska Rodriguez and Mohd Faiz Subri are the three nominees for the FIFA Puskas award 2016 for the best goal of the year.

The three-player shortlist was whittled down from an original 10 goals, with the winner to be announced on Jan. 9, 2017.

Lionel Messi's long free kick in Argentina's Copa America 4-0 semifinal victory over the United States and Neymar's flick and volley for Barcelona against Villarreal were not included.

Marlone scored with a fine chest control and volley in a Copa Libertadores tie against Cobresal in April.

Rodriguez scored a solo goal for Venezuela against Colombia in Women's Under-17 Sudamericano Championship in March, holding off two challenges before firing past the goalkeeper.

While the most outrageous free kick of the year came in the Malaysia Super League, when Mohd Faiz Subri channelled his inner Papiss Cisse for Penang against Pahang to hit a bending effort that was going toward one corner and went in the other.

Shortlist for FIFA Puskas Award 2016:

Marlone, Brazil: April 21, 2016, Corinthians vs. Cobresal, Copa Libertadores
Daniuska Rodriguez, Venezuela: March 14, 2016, Venezuela vs. Colombia, South American U17 Women's Football Championship
Mohd Faiz Subri, Malaysia: Feb. 16, 2016, Penang vs. Pahang, Malaysia Super League
