From the happiness to the heartache to the history that has been made, there has been a multitude of amazing moments so far this 2016. From Leicester winning the Premier League title to Steph and Kristen becoming the first ever female winners of TAR Canada, 2016 had a host of incredible moments that will not soon be forgotten. So to cap off The Mastermind Award Nominees 2016, it is time to talk about the very best moments of 2016 in the world of both football and reality TV!
Leicester City Win Premier League Title ♥
I’ve already talked in great length in a few other nomination pages about how special this moment was but words still cannot describe truly how much this meant to all in football, particularly those that call themselves a fan of the Foxes. Eden Hazard’s goal against Tottenham was officially the moment that sealed the deal but Wes Morgan and Claudio Ranieri lifting the trophy will forever be the one remembered as the iconic image of this incredible 2015-16 Premier League title win for the Foxes. Every single person at the club played their part and every single person watching around the world wanted it to happen. I don’t think anyone could ever truly describe how amazing this was.
Eder Scores Euro 2016 Winning Goal
It took 109 minutes of a relatively tame final match of Euro 2016 for someone to break the deadlock but substitute Eder Lopes finally managed to do it with a thunderbolt of an effort from outside the area, winning Portugal Euro 2016. Madness erupted around the stadium when this goal went in and the Portugese players just could not believe it. Somehow Portugal managed to win Euro 2016 and they did it without Ronaldo, as Eder scored this fantastic goal.
Jamie Vardy Breaks Premier League Goal Record
Nobody even knew who Jamie Vardy was a couple of years ago but under Claudio Ranieri last season the former non-league footballer managed to do the impossible and break Ruud Van Nilsterooy’s Premier League goal record for most consecutive games scoring a goal. Watching Jamie Vardy score every single week regardless of who the Foxes were playing was amazing to see and as he grew closer and closer to the record no one could take their eyes off of this man and Leicester City Football Club. Vardy scored 13 goals in 11 games to break the record helping the Foxes pick up a host of surprise results along the way. This kind of goal return from the Premier League striker was one of the keys to Leicester City’s success and forever cemented his place in Premier League legacy. This record might not ever be broken again and it is absolutely amazing that a former non-league player, Jamie Vardy, is the one that pulled it off.
