The 11 nominees are led by the Portuguese's stunning effort for Real Madrid against Juventus, with no room for an effort in the Champions League final

Cristiano Ronaldo is among the nominees for the UEFA Goal of the Season prize.

The Portugal superstar is one of 11 candidates in the running for the award following his stunning overhead kick for Real Madrid against his new club Juventus in last season's Champions League .

Only one goal from each UEFA competition is nominated, so Ronaldo has been selected ahead former team-mate Gareth Bale, who scored a similarly acrobatic effort in Madrid's Champions League final defeat of Liverpool .

Dimitri Payet provides the Europa League nomination, the France international producing a brilliant dribble and finish in Marseille's win against RB Leipzig.
