UEFA has released a list of 12 candidates that have been nominated for the goal of the season with Cristiano Ronaldo and Christian Eriksen included in the list
Cristiano Ronaldo’s beautiful overhead bicycle kick against his new club Juventus in last season’s Champions League quarter-final clash for Real Madrid is in the voting poll.
While Eriksen’s goal for Denmark against the Republic of Ireland in the qualifying stages of the World Cup has also been included after the Tottenham playmaker timed his finish to perfection.
Marseille’s Dimitri Payet has also got a nod on the list for his superb finish against RB Leipzig in the Europa League.
But the goals nominated were not restricted to just the highest level with the UEFA including England U-19 international Elliot Embleton’s stunning effort against Turkey in a European Championship group game.
Lucy Bronze’s outstanding volley against Manchester City in the UEFA Women’s Champions League semi-finals was equally nominated.
