Believe it or not, the awards from the 2020-21 season are still trickling in, and yesterday Dele got a nomination. UEFA have tapped Dele’s overhead kick vs. Wolfsberger in the Europa League Round of 32 as one of ten candidates for the UEFA Goal of the Season.
If you forgot what Dele did against the Austrian side, here’s a quick video reminder.
(Yes, I know this suddenly transitions to a Kodija goal by Aston Villa, IDK why, don’t ask me, it’s YouTube)
UEFA has a run-down of all the other nine candidates which is pulled from all UEFA European competitions this past season, including Euro 2020, Champions League, Europa League, Women’s Champions League, and the Futsal League. Suffice it to say that if you’re interested in viewing them go ahead and look them up, and you can vote for the one you think should win, but as for me I’m a Tottenham Hotspur fan and I just wanted an excuse to give you the opportunity to watch that outrageous bicycle kick again. Your welcome.
