Hungary midfielder Zoltan Gera has won the Euro 2016 Goal of the Tournament award, edging out Cristiano Ronaldo.
The accolade, which is decided by supporters, saw the 37-year-old top the poll with 32% of the votes cast for his strike against Ronaldo’s Portugal in the dramatic 3-3 Group F draw on June 22.
Gera’s effort, which gave Hungary the lead, saw him control with his chest before powering home a left-footed long-range strike.
Ronaldo came second with 24% for his leaping header against Wales in the semi-final, with Xherdan Shaqiri (23%) third following his acrobatic goal in Switzerland’s last-16 match with Poland.
Eder (16%) was fourth for his decisive goal from distance in the final against France, while Hal Robson-Kanu’s goal for Wales in their victory over Belgium came fifth on just 5%.
