Tokyo: Kumi Yokoyama was a mere 16 years old when she dribbled past six Korea DPR players in the semi-finals of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Trinidad and Tobago 2010 to score one of the greatest goals in the history of women’s football.
Her stunning solo effort earned her the FIFA Puskás Award that same year and marked the emergence of a player whose talent has continued to blossom ever since.
“It was a miracle goal and I wouldn’t have got where I am today without it,” the Japanese forward told FIFA.com. “It generated a lot of expectation and put a lot of pressure on my shoulders, but I learned a lot from it. The experience I’ve gained has helped me overcome the obstacles I’ve faced.”
