Mohd Faiz Subri, the young man who has now made it to the top three (3) of the FIFA Puskás Award 2016 needs our help. In the spirit of 1Malaysia, I would like to call upon all Malaysians to come together and vote for Mohd Faiz Subri to ensure that he wins this award for himself and also for our country.
Who would have thought, this young man from Penang would be among the top three finalist of the world renowned FIFA Puskás Award for scoring the best goal in the world between 30 September 2015 and 30 September 2016.
In order to vote, Malaysians would need to click this link http://www.fifa.com/the-best-fifa-football-awards/puskas-award/index.html and proceed to vote. It is very simple.
As we all know, football is a global phenomenon and is followed by billions of people worldwide. It is a sport that has the highest fan base and also the most lucrative. Mohd Faiz Subri has put Malaysia on the world football map which we would have never dreamt of in the first place. The extraordinary effort of Mohd Faiz Subri and now being in the top three (3) finalist is free marketing and publicity for our beloved country.
Due to this, football fans around the world would have recognized Malaysia because of Mohd Faiz Subri. I hope this extraordinary feet by this young man will be recognized by the government especially the Youth and Sports Ministry as what the government did previously in Badminton and the paralympic games.
I hope the Youth and Sports Minister would reward Mohd Faiz Subri even if he did not win the FIFA Puskás Award because what he has done is a one in a lifetime achievement that we, as a country might not be able to replicate in a hundred year time.
Thank You Mohd Faiz Subri.
