Irelander Stephanie Roche could make footballing history.

A goal she scored in 2013 while playing for Irish side Peamount United has caught the attention of FIFA. As such, she is now in contention for the FIFA Puskas Award for goal of the year.

If she wins, she would be the first female ever to receive the accolade.

The shortlist of ten also includes the likes of Diego Costa and Robin van Persie. It will be shortlisted to three on December 1, 2014.
