Can this league one striker tackle Messi and Tevez for Fifa's Goal of the Year?

Remember last year when the whole country got behind relatively unknown Irish footballer Stephanie Roche after being nominated for the 2014 FIFA Puskás Award for goal of the year? And remember that pang of pride we all felt when she beat goal-slaying powerhouses Robin Van Persie, Diego Costa and Zlatan Ibrahimović to take the runners up prize? Well, it's about to happen all over again.

David Ball, striker for mighty Fleetwood Town is up for the top prize this year, but faces even stiffer competition in the 5'7" form of one Lionel Messi. 

Messi, who's mantelpiece is still without a Puskás Award, enters the comp with his phenomenal solo effort against Athletic Bilbao, whereas 25-year-old Ball has thrown his incredible chip against Preston North End into the ring. 

Who'll come out on top? Judge for yourselves below, before the winner is announced on 11 January 2016.
