The Central African Republic international’s first goal of the season for his Spanish club is up for an award

Geoffrey Kondogbia’s strike in Valencia’s 4-1 victory against Lille has been nominated for the Champions League Goal of the Week.

The 26-year-old midfielder scored his first goal of the season for the Mates in style, firing home a long-range shot in the 84th minute of the encounter at Estadio Mestalla on Tuesday night.

The stunning strike from the Central African Republic international has been shortlisted along with efforts from Juventus’ Douglas Costa, Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling and Liverpool’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for the best goal award.

Victory against French side Lille helped Albert Celades’ men to be tied on seven points with Ajax and Chelsea in Group H.

Kondogbia will look to maintain his impressive form in Valencia’s next outing in the tournament against Premier League side Chelsea on November 27.
