It was 1988, he played defense on his team ("which is the most boring position ever") Røa, and didn't have a habit of scoring, but suddenly after a corner the ball landed in front of his feet, he closed his eyes and shot straight into the net. But his team still lost.

As the man who surpassed himself. Someone who stretched his talent to the max. [on how he hopes to be remembered at the end of his life, in a January 2001 interview]
