UCL: Adeyemi’s superb strike against Chelsea among goals of the season

Karim Adeyemi’s solo goal against Chelsea in the first leg of their round of 16 tie has been selected as one of the top ten goals of the 2022–23 Champions League season by UEFA’s Technical Observer Panel.

The 21-year-old German international of Nigerian descent showed his lightening pace by running the full length of Signal Iduna Park, leaving Chelsea’s Enzo Fernandez dead for pace before rounding goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and slotting the ball into an empty net.

UEFA’s panel also selected Kylian Mbappe’s stunning volley against Juventus, with the French star appearing on the list twice. Former Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi also got on the list with his cool finish against Benfica, while Manchester City’s leading marksman, Erling Haaland, led the selection with his acrobatic finish against his old side, Dortmund.
