Many Chelsea fans have been criticizing the UEFA match officials' decision as Moreno was given the award despite the fact that Villarreal were the losing team.
Speaking from my own angle of view, Gerard Moreno really deserves the award for his efforts which held the match longer to penalty shootouts at Windsor Park.
The goal scored by him was responsible for how the match was extended to extra-time and consequently to Penalty Kick Shootouts.
Another reason is that the award may be given to him as a form of consolation as his efforts at goals didn't materialize despite his brilliant displays in the match.
