Thiago Alcantara’s impeccable half-volley against FC Porto has been named the Champions League Goal of the Week.

The midfielder opened the scoring in Liverpool’s 2-0 win on Wednesday night with an exquisite piece of finishing – dispatching an unstoppable, first-time drive into the Kop-end net from 25 yards.

His effort clinched the Goal of the Week accolade for matchday five of the competition, following a poll of fans on UEFA.com.

Thiago edged out goals by Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich), Silvan Hefti (Young Boys) and Pedro Goncalves (Sporting CP) to scoop the award.
