Dundalk's Jordan Flores has followed in the footsteps of Stephanie Roche in flying the Irish flag for the Puskas Award at the Best FIFA Awards. 

Flores' wonder strike against Shamrock Rovers in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division back in February is among 11 entries on the shortlist for the goal of the year. Son Heung Min's goal for Tottenham against Burnley in the Premier League last December is among the rival entries.

Roche made a final shortlist of three for the gong back in 2015, finishing second for her wonder goal for Peamount United the previous year.

Last year's winner Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are on the shortlist for the Best FIFA Men's Player of the Year.

In total, there are 11 players nominated for the Men's prize. The others are Thiago, now of Liverpool, Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne, Kylian Mbappe, Robert Lewandowski, Neymar, Sergio Ramos, and Liverpool trio Mo Salah, Virgil Van Dijk and Sadio Mane.

Another Liverpool player, Alisson, is among six nominees for the Best Men's Goalkeeper.

Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp and Marcelo Bielsa of Leeds United are among five nominees for the Best FIFA Men's Coach. Joining them on the list are Bayern Munich's Hansi Flick, Zinedine Zidane and Julen Lopetegui.

England's Lucy Bronze is on the shortlist for the Best FIFA Women's Player award.

There is public voting via FIFA.com, with votes to be cast before December 9th.

The awards will take place on December 17th.
