Alessia Russo: Fifa Puskas award recognition 'huge' for women's game

England striker Alessia Russo said it is "huge" for women's football that her goal was among those to be nominated for the Fifa Puskas award.

Russo's backheeled finish in England's Euro 2022 semi-final win over Sweden is one of three goals scored by women on the 11-player shortlist.

Among the competition is Kylian Mbappe's volley for France that took the World Cup final to extra time.

"As much as you don't want to say it's surreal, it is," said Russo.
