De Vanna, an Australian forward for the NWSL's Sky Blue FC, is in esteemed company after having her corkscrewing, bicycle kick goal against the Boston Breakers nominated for FIFA's Puskas Award, which is given to the top goal of the year around the world for both club and country.
De Vanna is one of two women up for the award, with Lyon's French international Louisa Necib also nominated for her strike against St. Etienne. They'll contend for votes against the likes of Ibrahimovic, Neymar, Di Natale, Liga MX's Daniel Ludueña (Pachuca), Nemanja Matic, Juan Manuel Olivera, Panagiotis Kone and Peter Ankersen.
The list of nominees will be whittled to three after online voting concludes Dec. 9. The winner will be announced at FIFA's Ballon d'Or gala on Jan. 13.
