The UEFA Technical Observers report read: "Very good build-up and switch from left to right followed by a fine piece of individual skill and a superb left-foot finish."

Ronaldo's nomination is his overhead kick for former club Real Madrid against new club Juventus in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Bronze's selected effort is a volley for Lyon against Manchester City.

All of the goals are part of a shortlist of 11 goals, one from each of Uefa's main competitions over the past 12 months.
