Egypt international has been shortlisted for the UEFA Champions League Goal of the Week award.

The five-man shortlist saw the inclusion of duo Salah and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for their goals against Manchester City in the two legs of the quarter-final of the competition.

Salah earned the nomination following his goal in the second leg of the quarter-final, which saw the Reds win 2-1 at Etihad Stadium to secure their qualification to the semi-final with a 5-1 aggregate score. He scored the equaliser after collecting a loose ball and calmly chipping it into the net.

The 25-year-old had also scored the opening goal in the first leg at Anfield, which ended in a 3-0 victory for Liverpool.

Besides his teammate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Salah faces competition from Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo for his overhead kick in his side’s 3-0 victory over Juventus, Juventus’ Mario Mandzukic header in their 3-1 victory over Real Madrid in the second leg and Barcelona’s Luis Suarez for his goal against AS Roma.

You can vote for the Champions League Goal of the Week award here. The poll opened on Thursday and is set to close on Monday.
