Del Piero rocket voted goal of the season

Footballaustralia.com.au users have voted Alessandro Del Piero's round 23 screamer against Perth Glory goal of the season.

Perth ultimately won the fixture, beating Sydney FC 2-1 at nib Stadium in March, with goals from Chris Harold and Shane Smeltz.

But the game will best be remembered for the Italian superstar's stunning 30-metre strike.

The three goals of the season contenders were those that collected the highest number of votes across the season.

Andrew Nabbout's last-gasp winner against Sydney FC in round 6 came third, with 360 votes.

Victory teammate and Johnny Warren Medal winner Marco Rojas came second, with 739 votes, for his instinctive swivel and half-volley against Newcastle Jets in round 13.

But Del Piero's super striker was clear winner with 1182 votes.
