Mon 19 July 2021, 13:50|Tottenham Hotspur
Dele Alli has been shortlisted for the UEFA.com Goal of the Season for 2020/21.
A selection of 10 goals from across UEFA’s club and national team competitions - proposed by the UEFA editorial team before being validated by the Technical Observer panel - were revealed earlier today (Monday). Fans can now have their say with voting now open.
Dele is up for the award after his incredible bicycle kick that got us up and running in our UEFA Europa League Round of 32 second leg 4-0 win over Wolfsberger AC.
Coming in the opening 10 minutes of the clash at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the forward latched onto Matt Doherty’s cross from the right, set himself with his first touch before acrobatically executing the strike. A Carlos Vinicius double, plus an effort from Gareth Bale, made it 4-0 on the night.
Dele will now be up against Mehdi Taremi (for Porto versus Chelsea – Champions League), Patrik Schick (for Czech Republic at Scotland – Euro 2020), Kemar Roofe (for Rangers at Standard Liege – Europa League), Florian Wirtz (for Germany versus Netherlands – Under-21 Championship), Lorenzo Insigne (for Italy versus Belgium – Euro 2020), Paul Pogba (for France versus Switzerland – Euro 2020), Sarah Zadrazil (For Bayern Munich at Chelsea – Women’s Champions League), Ferrao (for Barcelona versus Dobovec – Futsal Champions League) and Paulinho (for Braga versus Leicester – Europa League).
