Phil Foden’s wonderful strike in our enthralling 3-3 draw with Real Madrid has been nominated for UEFA Champions League Goal of the Tournament.

With Pep Guardiola’s side trailing 2-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu with less than half an hour remaining in the quarter-final first leg tie, the England international received the ball on the edge of the box, dropped his shoulder then unleashed a vicious drive into the top corner to equalise.

Josko Gvardiol handed the visitors the lead soon after before Federico Valverde’s unstoppable volley restored parity once again.

Unfortunately, we would dramatically be knocked out on penalties by Carlo Ancelotti's side at the last-eight stage after a 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium in the second leg.

Los Blancos went on to win the prestigious trophy after seeing past Bayern Munich in the semi-finals before beating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in Wembley’s showpiece.
