NICOLAI GEERTSEN has elevated himself into a Puskas Award contender after his stunning goal in the Danish Cup.

 The defender, 29, found himself up for a corner as Lyngby faced SBI on Wednesday night.

Geertsen met the initial cross with a stunning, clean, overhead kick from around the penalty spot.

The amazing effort cannoned off the crossbar.

But Geertsen wasn’t content to have just come close.

Showing amazing reactions while still on the ground, he threw himself at the rebound, meeting it with another plum volley.

And this time it found nothing but net, rifling past the helpless goalkeeper.

The strike helped Lyngby on their way to an emphatic 9-0 win.

And the Danish Superliga side are campaigning for their man to win the Puskas Award.

They tweeted: “@NKGeertsen #SammenForPuskas”.

Geertsen himself tweeted the goal with a clenched fist emoji.

And plenty of fans expressed their amazement on social media.

One wrote: “WOW!!!”

While another added: “#bestgoalever”.

A third commented: “WTF give him the Puskas now”.

Geertsen could have stiff competition, however, with Valentino Lazaro having netted a stunning scorpion kick for Borussia Monchengladbach against Bayer Leverkusen at the weekend.
