The midfielder's superb half volley in Hungary's thrilling 3-3 stalemate with eventual winners Portugal has been voted as the best strike of the competition by supporters

Zoltan Gera's amazing strike in Hungary's 3-3 draw with competition winners Portugal has been voted as Euro 2016 Goal of the Tournament by fans.

The former Fulham and West Bromwich Albion midfielder opened the scoring in superb style as he thrashed a half-volley past Rui Patricio in the goal-laden clash in Lyon.

Balazs Dzsudzsak and Cristiano Ronaldo both scored twice while Nani also found the net in the memorable 3-3 stalemate between the two teams.

Gera played a key role in helping his side emerge as a surprise package at the Euros, with Hungary topping Group F in unbeaten fashion before losing 4-0 against Belgium in the last 16.

And 37-year-old fought off some excellent contenders - including Xherdan Shaqiri, Ronaldo and Hal Robson-Kanu - to claim the supporters' nod as the finest strike at the tournament.

Euro 2016 Goal of the Tournament vote results:

1st - Zoltan Gera (Hungary v Portugal) - 32%
2nd - Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal v Wales) - 24%
3rd - Xherdan Shaqiri (Switzerland v Poland) - 23%
