The 24-year-old netted a stoppage time overhead kick goal against Orlando Pirates in a Premiership clash on November 1, 2016.

Masuluke is up against Oliver Giroud of France and Deyna Castellanos, who scored from the halfway line for Venezuela.

The winner of the prestigious award will be announced on Monday, October 23
