[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.
