“Honestly, it has never crossed my mind that I would arrive at this level and be able to stand tall among world-class footballers in this amazing place,” said Faiz. 

“I am grateful to have won, I wish to thank all who voted for me in Malaysia and throughout the world. Not forgetting my family, coaches and the Penang team. Without their support, this win would not be possible because the other candidates in the running also scored great goals,” added Faiz.

Faiz who was an attacking midfielder for Penang team scored with a wildly swerving long-range free-kick on February 16 in a match against Pahang for 2016 Malaysian Super League.

The football initially appeared to be flying towards left corner but swerved towards right corner in mid-air, leaving the goalkeeper dumbfounded.
