Ingvild Stensland

Ingvild Stensland
Norway captain Stensland has been the rock in the national team's midfield for more than a decade, racking up over 130 caps. Starting her career with FK Donn, she moved on to FK Athene Moss before arriving in 2002 at Kolbotn IL, soon making her international debut and reaching the UEFA Women's EURO 2005 final.

After three championships with Kolbotn, Stensland joined Göteborg FC in 2007, two years later switching to Olympique Lyonnais for what proved an injury-hit spell. She did play in the 2010 UEFA Women's Champions League final loss to 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam and was an unused substitute when the tables were turned 12 months later, as well as winning two French titles.

Briefly back at Göteborg, Stensland then joined Stabæk FK in 2012, winning the championship in 2013, when she also captained Norway to the UEFA Women's EURO final.

Stig Inge Bjørnebye

Stig Inge Bjørnebye
The son of a two-time winter Olympian, the tireless left-back was always destined to be a professional sportsman. He made his name with Rosenborg BK, signing in 1992 after impressing for Kongsvinger IL.

Bjørnebye won a league and cup double in his first season in Trondheim, catching the eye of Liverpool FC with his winner in the cup final. He became a Reds favourite during his eight-year stint at the club, which brought an English League Cup triumph, a trophy he lifted again with Blackburn Rovers FC in 2002.

A mainstay of the Norwegian national team for a decade, he played at two FIFA World Cups and UEFA EURO 2000, collecting 76 international caps.
