The 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia treated football lovers to 169 goals in 64 matches – and fans around the world have chosen Benjamin Pavard’s as the best of the tournament.
In an online poll where over three million FIFA.com users casted their votes, Pavard’s outside-of-the-foot rocket for France against Argentina, in which the 22-year-old displayed marvellous technique, has been voted the Hyundai Goal of the Tournament.
The goal selected by FIFA.com users was France’s equaliser against Argentina in the Round of 16.
Pavard’s goal saw off stiff competition to win the accolade, including Juan Quintero’s delightful low free-kick for Colombia against Japan in the group stage which finished second, and Luka Modric’s long-range stunner against Argentina, also in the group stage, which came third in the voting.
