Ronaldo And Eleven Others Nominated For UEFA Goal Of The Season Prize
Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo leads 11 other nominees for the UEFA Goal of the Season prize.
The Juventus striker’s stunning overhead kick for former club, Real Madrid against current club, Juventus in last season’s Champions League sees him join other players like Christian Erickson, Dimitri Payet and Eva Navaro on the list.
The prize only allows for one goal to be selected from each UEFA competition, which means Gareth Bale’s equally stunning overhead kick at last season’s Champions League final against Liverpool missed out.
Dimitri Payet’s brilliant solo effort against RB Leipzig was the Europa League nominee for the award.
Also on the shortlists are Goncalo Ramos, Paulo Estrela and Ricardinho as well as Tottenham and Danish playmaker, Christian Eriksen.
Mario Mandzukic won the award last year, while Lionel Messi won it in 2015 and 2016.

Lucy Bronze (Lyon 1-0 Manchester City)
