Griezmann volley named UEFA Champions League Goal Of The Week, presented by Nissan!

The Atletico man's magnificent strike versus Roma won the prize for Matchday Five, seeing off competition from Luke Modric and Dani Alves

Antoine Griezmann’s magnificent volley versus Roma has been named UEFA Champions League Goal of the Week, presented by Nissan!

The Atletico Madrid man ended a personal goal drought in spectacular fashion with a flying volley during a vital 2-0 win over the Italians on Matchday Five.

The France international saw off some stiff competition to take the gong, including a sensational volley of his own from Real Madrid’s Luka Modric versus APOEL.

And Griezmann also beat out Brazil international Dani Alves, whose wicked, dipping shot from long-range rounded off PSG’s 7-1 victory over Celtic.

Napoli's Lorenzo Insigne was also up for the award, for his wonderfully-controlled curling strike against Shakhtar, while Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son rounded off the nominations with an emphatic finish during his side’s 2-1 at Dortmund.
