Newcastle Jets striker Riley McGree is taking on some of the biggest names in world soccer and we rate him a great chance to win the prestigious Puskas award.

McGree as the $4.50 third favourite for the award, named after former Hungary and Real Madrid striker Ferenc Puskas.

It is won by the player judged to have scored the ‘most beautiful’ goal of the year.

Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo heads betting at $1.75 ahead of Welsh striker Gareth Bale ($3.50).

What a thrill for McGree and great advertisement for the A-League. Not only did his goal, from a scorpion kick, go viral, he has now been honoured with a nomination for this prestigious award. He’s in with a chance alongside some of the biggest names in the sport.

The top three dominate the betting with Giorian de Arrascaeta next on $10.
