Former Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns winger George Lebese has won the 2020 Goal of the Year for USL Championship side Switchbacks FC.

Lebese, 31, joined the American outfit in December 2019 after an ill-fated stint at Sundowns and enjoyed regular game time in his debut season.

With two goals and as many assists in 16 games, his displays earned him a renewed deal ahead of the 2021 campaign - which has now been capped off with an individual honour.

"As voted by the fans, our 2020 Goal of the Year was George Lebese on August 26 against Austin Bold FC," the statement read on social media.

"This stunner was beautiful by itself and it capped off the first four-goal comeback in USL Championship history!"
