By Press Association 2021
Kemar Roofe, Paul Pogba and Dele Alli are on a list of 10 players for the UEFA Goal of the Season award.
Patrik Schick’s lob from the center line on a blocked David Marshall in the Czech Republic’s Euro 2020 win over Scotland is also a contender.
Alli scored Tottenham’s first goal against Wolfsburg in the Champions League with a spectacular kick.
Manchester United midfielder Pogba scored one of the Euro 2020 goals for France against Switzerland.
Pogba recovered the ball from 25 yards and completed an astonishing effort into the skylight to give France a 3-1 lead.
However, the Swiss eventually reached the quarter-finals on penalties after a 3-3 draw.
Rangers forward Roofe also scored from the Europa League halfway line.
Roofe won the ball in his own half and beat three Standard de Liège players before putting in a sensational long-distance effort.
Mehdi Taremi’s header for Porto against Chelsea and Paulinho’s finish for Braga against Leicester are also on the shortlist.
The European Championships also provided Lorenzo Insigne’s strike for Italy against Belgium.
Florian Wirtz’s first-minute effort for Germany Under-21 against the Netherlands, Sarah Zadrazil’s love at first sight for Bayern Munich against Chelsea in the Women’s Champions League semi-final and the goal de Ferrao in futsal for Barcelona against Dobovec round out the list.
