Hosseini’s strike, voted World Cup’s Goal of the Tournament
The Iranian goalkeeper, named adidas Golden Glove, adds a new honour to his already brilliant career
From more than 260 goals scored at the FIFA Beach Soccer Bahamas 2017, it was ultimately the very first goal scored at the tournament that captured the imagination and votes of thousands of fans from all over the world.
Just 19 minutes into the opening game of the tournament Iran goalkeeper Peyman Hosseini stunned the crowd when, deep into his own half, he coolly flicked it up with his right foot and then fired a volley across the pitch that ended in the top corner of the Mexican net.
From that moment, the very first goal of the tournament was a contender for the Goal of the Tournament!
Hosseini’s strike beat 11 other incredible goals to become Goal Of the Tournament.
