Two Serie A goals by Antonio Di Natale and Panagiotis Kone have been shortlisted for the annual FIFA Puskas Award.
The trophy, named in honour of former Real Madrid and Hungary great Ferenc Puskas, is given out to recognise the best goal of the year at the Ballon d’Or ceremony in January.
Udinese ace Di Natale is on the 10-goal shortlist for his April strike against Chievo, while Bologna’s Kone is included for his effort versus Napoli last December.
The 10 goals will be reduced to a top three on December 9, where a second public vote will determine the winner.
