Mohamed Salah edges Cristiano Ronaldo in Champions League goal vote

The accolades just keep on coming for Mohamed Salah who can now add the Champions League Goal of the Week (for the quarterfinals) award to his already swollen list of achievements this season.

The in-form Liverpool winger took the vote for his delightful dink against Manchester City in the last eight, though many neutral fans are questioning whether or not the award deserved to go to Cristiano Ronaldo for his all-the-more spectacular overhead effort against Juventus.

Despite earning a standing ovation from the Juve supporters for his stunning acrobatic finish, the Real Madrid superstar finished second in the official UEFA poll, roughly 10 percent behind Salah.

One glimpse at the comments beneath UEFA's announcement on Facebook reveals that the opinion wasn't exactly unanimous, but that didn't stop thousands of fans giving Salah the nod over Ronaldo.

Not that it matters a great deal, but how can you snub a man who leapt two clear metres into the air to thrash home an electrifying bicycle kick?

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
