Mandzukic wins goal of the season

Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic has won the 2016-17 UEFA Goal of the Season award for his overhead kick against Real Madrid.

The Bianconeri were beaten 4-1 by the Spanish champions in the Champions League final, having gone into half-time at 1-1.

That was thanks to an extraordinary strike from Mandzukic, who looped a sensational overhead kick into the net.

Leonardo Bonucci sent a long ball out to Alex Sandro on the left wing, and the Brazilian volleyed it first time into the area.

Gonzalo Higuain got on the end of it, taking a touch on his chest before volleying it to his Croatian teammate.

Mandzukic chested the ball up, before hooking it over his shoulder and over Keylor Navas in the Madrid goal.

Today UEFA has voted it the best goal of the 2016-17 season, beating Casemiro’s volley against Napoli, among others.
