Reggae Boyz target Kemar Roofe, a 28-year-old forward with Scottish champions Rangers, is in the running for UEFA’S goal of the season.

Roofe’s outrageous strike from the halfway line came in a Europa League group game with Standard Liege on October 22 last year.

UK-born Roofe’s goal, who is eligible to play for Jamaica through his heritage, was measured at 54.6 yards, the furthest distance ever for a goal in the Europa League.

Others in the running include Manchester United and France midfielder Paul Pogba and Tottenham Hotspur’s Dele Alli.

Pogba’s finish from outside the box for France against Switzerland at Euro 2020 is among 10 nominees for the prize.

Alli’s bicycle kick came in a Europa League group on February 24 against Wolfsberger.
