Former Real Madrid star forward Cristiano Ronaldo’s stunning bicycle kick against Juventus in the Champions League quarterfinals was included in the nominations for the UEFA Goal of the Year, The Indian Express reported. Apart from Ronaldo, England international Lucy Bronze and Elliot Embleton’s strike was also included in the shortlist of 11 goals announced by UEFA on Tuesday. The goals have been selected from each of UEFA’s main competitions, over the past 12 months. 

Bronze’s selected effort was a volley for Lyon against Manchester City, while Embleton’s nominated strike came in a European Under-19 Championship group stage match against Turkey.

Ronaldo’s stunning bicycle kick in April had seen his former club Real pick up a 3-0 win over the Serie A Champions. The Portuguese striker, who has moved to Juventus at the start of this season, scored two goals in the match and caused the elimination of the Italian side from the tournament. 

A goal from Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen in Denmark’s World Cup play-off win over Ireland was also included in the nominations. Ronaldo’s goal surpassed Gareth Bale’s tremendous volley in the final to make it in the list of nominations.
