Alex Tettey’s 2014 wonder-strike against Sunderland has seen the Norwich City midfielder shortlisted for Sky Sports’ Goal of the Decade prize, which has now been put to a public vote.

Tettey's goal is the only Canaries contender among the top 40 selected for the competition - although three goals against City and two former Norwich strikers are also on the list.

The former Norway international's brilliant 25-yard volley during a 2-0 win over Sunderland at Carrow Road in February 2014 has made the cut, a River End goal which will always be remembered fondly by the Carrow Road faithful for its pure power.

The goals against the Canaries are kicked off by a similar strike from Fraizer Campbell for Sunderland, as City lost 3-0 at the Stadium of Light in February 2012.

Also included is Jack Wilshere completing a wonderful team goal against the Canaries as Arsenal won 4-1 at the Emirates in October 2013.

The other will come as little surprise, scored by a man the Canaries hated facing: Luis Suarez.

The Uruguay and Barcelona superstar scored 12 goals in six games against Norwich during his Liverpool days and his long-range strike during the Reds' 5-1 victory at Anfield in December 2013 is currently featuring his in the voting.
