AS.com | 27/12/2012

FIFA has announced its '12 moments that defined 2012', and has included Leo Messi breaking Gerd Muller's record for number of goals in a calendar year in the list, despite not officially recognising the record when it was broken on 9 December.

The organisation sat on the fence during a recent debate which began when the Zambian Football Association revealed that the late striker Godfrey Chitalu had scored 107 goals in 1972. A FIFA spokesman declared that the organisation only recognises goals scored in FIFA tournaments, and not domestic competitions, meaning it did not recognise Chitalu, Messi's or Müller's record.

Spain's performance in the European Championship final against Italy in Kiev also made the list, with the report stating: "Having listened to sniping criticism throughout their run to the final, Spain provided their detractors with a stunning reminder of why this era belongs to them."

Andrea Pirlo's 'panenka' penalty against England in the quarter-finals of Euro 2012 made the list too, but Sergio Ramos's carbon-copy penalty against Portugal in the semi-finals of the tournament did not. Real Madrid's record-breaking league title and 100 points total was also ignored.
