Goal of the Year: Vote now for Grimaldo or Wirtz

The German Football League (DFL) has announced the nominations for Goal of the Year 2023. Two Werkself players Alejandro Grimaldo and Florian Wirtz are included. Fans have up to Sunday 7 January to vote for Grimaldo's leveller at 1-1 against Bayern Munich or the Wirtz opener against SC Freiburg.


In the 2-2 draw away to Bayern Munich in September of last year, Grimaldo scored from a free kick from 18 metres out with a shot into the top right corner to make it 1-1.

Wirtz opened the scoring in the 2-1 home win against SC Freiburg in October of last year with an impressive solo run. The Germany international won the award for October Goal of the Month by a clear margin.

The two Werkself players are in the vote alongside Harry Kane, Matthijs de Ligt, Kingsley Coman, Joshua Kimmich, Jamal Musiala (all Bayern Munich), Benjamin Pavard (formerly Bayern Munich), Marco Reus, Nico Schlotterbeck (both at Borussia Dortmund), Xavi Simons (RB Leipzig), Florian Grillitsch (TSG Hoffenheim) and Jan-Niklas Beste (FC Heidenheim).
