Ronaldo wins Europe goal of the season award
Five-time Ballon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo has won the UEFA Goal of the Season Award. His mercurial overhead kick against his current club side, Juventus during last season’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final match earned him the award.
He won the award with a total of nearly 200,000 votes out of a possible 346,915 votes. He succeeds his new Juve colleague Mario Mandzukic, who won last year for his goal against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final, while Lionel Messi took the award in both 2014/15 and 2015/16.
