International class for Viking

Viking FK have signed Canadian international midfielder Sandro Grande and Sweden defender Frederik Lundvist.

Double deal
The 27-year-old Canadian international Grande joins from Montreal Impact in his homeland while the 28-year-old Sweden right-back arrives in Norwegian football from Allsvenskan club GIF Sundsvall.

European campaign
Viking gained entry to the 2005/06 UEFA Cup thanks to Norway topping UEFA's Fair Play rankings. They play the return match of their second qualifying round tie against Portadown FC tomorrow night after a 2-1 win in Northern Ireland a fortnight ago.
