Plenty of fans have taken to social media to react, after Mason Bennett’s goal against Wigan Athletic from last season was not nominated for the FIFA Puskas Award.
The striker scored a spectacular goal in the 2-1 win for Derby at Pride Park in the Championship in March, just moments after coming off the bench.
Bennett was an important player for Derby last season and scored three goals in 38 appearances in all competitions as the Rams reached the Championship play-off final under Frank Lampard.
The striker has made two appearances for Derby so far this season, but is yet to find the net.
The Rams have made an encouraging start to the new season under new manager Phillip Cocu, taking five points from their opening three matches in the Championship.
FIFA have announced the ten-goal shortlist for the prestigious award, with the likes of Lionel Messi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Andros Townsend amongst those to be nominated.
Plenty of fans have taken to social media to react after the goal was excluded from the nominations.
Derby fans were among those to react, with many fans quick to express their disbelief that the goal was not included.
Here is a look at the best responses from fans on Twitter…
wow how silly. Not even being biased but Masons goal is levels higher than a lot of them goals.

How the hell did this not get nominated?!?! @Masonbennett20 has been robbed!

Mason Bennett needs to change his name to Messi to even be considered. Masons technique is not easy as he has kicked the ball with his standing leg, & therefore more difficult than a over head or side volley. Mason should be added.
