UEFA’s Goal Of The Season: Messi, Ronaldo, Sarr Battle To Win

UEFA has opened the voting for the annual Goal of the Season competition, and the usual suspects have been joined by some bright young stars.

The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are on the list, and they’ve been joined by Rennes starlet Ismaila Sarr, Monaco’s Enzo Millot, and Apollon Limassol’s David Faupala.

Sarr’s goal came against Jablonec in the Europa League group stage, when he played a one-two on the edge of the box and fired a powerful volley into the top corner.

Sarr’s good recent form has led to interest from Watford, who are continuing negotiations for what would be a club-record £24m fee for the winger.

Faupala’s impressive overhead effort came against Lazio in a 2-0 Europa League group stage victory.

And 17-year-old Millot scored in the Under-17 European Championship quarter-finals for France, managing to chip the goalkeeper from 30 yards after a quick break.

As for the more famous goals on the list, Messi’s unbelievable free-kick against Liverpool in the Champions League semi-finals makes it on there, as does Ronaldo’s volley against Manchester United in the group stage.
