The 2014 Puskás Award nominees for the best goal of the year

Today FIFA posted up the 10 shortlisted goals vying to be 2014 goal of the year. Go see the page and all the goals right here (or here if you prefer your words in Spanish).

For the record, this humble corner of cyberspace confidently predicts that Colombia's James Rodríguez will win for his (1st) goal against Uruguay in the 2014 World Cup Finals. If you want to know why, check out the video of his goal and pay special attention to the moment when 0:21 turns to 0:22 on the recording; it's before he even collects the ball. Also for what it's worth, this humble corner of cyberspace has called the last three winners of the award correctly. And this year's is just as easy.
