Europe and the USA provided all of the highlights this week. Plenty of goals, appearances and accomplishments broken down by Kristin Shaffer for your 9 Best Of The Week.
THREE BEST GOALS
3. LISA DE VANNA’S FIRST GOAL
This season, Lisa De Vanna joined Fiorentina Women's FC in Italy and it did not take long for the striker’s first goal for her new club. In just her second appearance, De Vanna collected a poor touch from a defender at the top of the box. She then only needed two touches to put the ball in the back of the net and earn a goal for Fiorentina. As the season plays out keep an eye on what else De Vanna can do.
2. SAM KERR'S 16TH OF THE SEASON
Sam Kerr continues her run at the golden boot in the NWSL by notching her 16th goal of the season, a league best. And of course she had to score with a little bit of style. Kerr was running towards goal when her teammate played her a through ball inside the box. Kerr wasted no time and sent the ball into the net with one touch, placing the ball between the goalkeeper’s legs for a nutmeg goal.

1. CHLOE LOGARZO’S LATE GOAL
A late sub into the match, Chloe Logarzo was hoping to help her team pull ahead for the win. The forward did her job and stepped up to create the heroic moment, scoring in the 90th minute of play.
Logarzo was passed a ball just outside the six-yard box, she settled the ball and sent a bending shot out of reach of the keeper. It seemed like the Spirit would win the game, but their celebrations were short lived thanks to an even later goal from Reign FC.
