Moroccan winger Amine Adli has earned a spot on the list of nominees for the UEFA Europa League Goal of the Week, thanks to his outstanding performance for German club Bayer Leverkusen in a recent match against Sweden’s BK Hacken on September 21.
During the game, which ended in a commanding 4-0 victory for Bayer Leverkusen, Adli delivered a stunning goal in the 16th minute, marking the second goal for his team. His exceptional performance didn’t stop there, as he also provided a spectacular assist for Victor Boniface’s goal in the 66th minute of the match.
UEFA has now opened voting for the Goal of the Week, featuring Adli alongside other contenders like Djibril Sidibe from Aek Athens, Ludovic Blas from Rennes, and Florian Flecker from Lask. Football enthusiasts are encouraged to cast their votes for the most impressive goal, with UEFA Europa League posting on social media, “The blast by Blas? Flecker’s hammer? Sidibe’s booming header? or Adli’s instep volley? Don’t forget to vote for your #UEL Goal of the Week.”
In addition to the Goal of the Week nomination, Adli is also in the running for the Player of the Week award, competing against players such as Ladislav Krejci from Sparta Praha, Adrien Truffert from Rennes, and Carlos Borges from Ajax Amsterdam.
A significant development in Adli’s career is his recent decision to represent the Moroccan national football team instead of France. This choice comes after his previous appearances for the French national teams at the U18 and U21 levels, where he accumulated 18 matches.
Adli’s outstanding contributions on the field continue to earn him recognition and acclaim, and he remains a player to watch in the world of football.
