A PROMISING young Zimbabwean footballer is in the running to win Goal of the Year in the Unites States Youth Soccer.

Thirteen-year-old Farai Mutatu of the TNT Dynamite Soccer Club in Lansing, Michigan, scored with a spectacular overhead kick on April 16 last year as they beat Under 13 league rivals SCOR 3-2.

US Youth Soccer, which will announce the winner at an awards gala on Indianapolis on Friday, January 18, said it received “numerous worthy submissions” from across the United States and had “narrowed the field down to 10 Goal of the Year official nominees”.

Mutatu’s strike takes pride of space among the final 10 goal nominees.
 
The young soccer star also played for his Haslett High School's basketball team while doing 7th grade last year.
 
Voting opened online on January 7 and will close on January 15.
