[VIDEO PICK: Golazos] Two of the best goals all season are on the menu today with Norway now looking to be a heavy favorite to bring home the women's goal of the year and Benfica taking aim at team goal of the season, and best assist.

During Saturday’s 4-1 win over Sandviken in Norway’s first division, Medkila’s Elisabeth Jeppesen submitted her nominee using just three magical touches.

The 27-year-old forward chested a long midfield pass perfectly, changed direction with a right-footed chip and then used her left to smash it across her body into the top right corner in this amazing sequence -- where the ball never touches the ground…



It will instantly become clear our second clip has sound, as Benfica’s rapid-fire team masterpiece in Sunday's 2-0 win over Sporting Lisbon elicits praise in Portugese. Lima is the goalscorer, but Argentine Nicolas Gaitan’s furious footwork, blinding one-two, and perfect cross are the stars in this scintillating tribute to team soccer.

Now this is how you move the rock …
