Every week, Fifa asks football fans from all around the world to send pictures, videos and other contents of memorable moments. 

Fifa selects top five moments every week from these contents.

The goal was sent to Fifa by a fan named Towsif Akkas, and Fifa called Monika “magical Chakma”, placing the goal at the top, even though there is no ranking in the list. 

The goal was selected from countless goals scored all across the world, and it is a memorable achievement not only for the talented young player, but also for Bangladesh football. 

Monika’s goal sends a message to the world that Bangladesh women’s football is fast improving.
