Mikkel Diskerud bagged the only goal for 10-man Rosenborg in a 3-1 loss at FK Haugesund. Early in the second half, the U.S. international picked the corner from an angle to register his second goal on the young season.Clip to come...- Greg Seltzer
There was a larger-than-usual contingent of Americans Abroad in action this Monday, as the English League Championship and leagues in Denmark, Belgium, Norway, and Germany all had matches throughout the day.
In Norway, Mix Diskerud helped his case for a potential national team call-up this summer, scoring in the 53rd minute of his side Rosenberg's 4-0 win over Brann.
Rosenborg ace Mikkel Diskerud has opened the new Tippeligaen season with his side's second in a 4-0 home rout of Brann. Shortly after his rebound was deposited for the icebreaker, our man Mix capped a fine RBK move on 52 minutes.Clip to come...- Greg Seltzer
I have been informed that a deal is all but set for Mikkel Diskerud to re-sign with Rosenborg, as we told you back in December was likely to happen back. Once I get a little more detail, there will be an MLSS report. - Greg Seltzer
If you don't love Mikkel Diskerud, there may be something wrong with you. Last night, believe it or not, Mix played goalie for sixth flight Sjetne in a friendly against Tiller 3. Think I'm pulling your leg? Think again. The notion of this was actually mentioned to me a while back, but I thought it was a joke - shows you never can be sure with that daffy dude.
I'll have a report up at MLSS as soon as somebody in America gets to the office, but we can go ahead and clear up some of the scene around free agent Rosenborg midfielder Mikkel Diskerud a bit right now. I spoke with Mix's dad/agent this morning, so the skinny doesn't get any straighter. Let's summarize quickly:Yes, the Portland Timbers are actively trying to court Diskerud, and yes, it is
A morning report from Norway says it's becoming more and more unlikely that Mikkel Diskerud will re-sign with Rosenborg the longer they remain without a new manager. Meanwhile, a new entrant into the race for his signature, Rapid Vienna, has already practically admitted defeat. Apparently, they aren't feeling confident next to other interested parties.
Break out the news trumpets...#1 - The David Beckham experiment officially ends with MLS Cup.#2 - Hønefoss netminder Steve Clark was named Tippeligaen Keeper of the Year and to the Team of the Season by official broadcast network TV2.- Greg Seltzer
Yep, Molde FK's Josh Gatt has broken into the category of multiple-medal winners after coming off the bench at halftime to help seal a title repeat. He also becomes just the fourth American to repeat as top flight champion in Europe, following DaMarcus Beasley (who accomplished the feat with both PSV and Rangers), Maurice Edu and Oguchi Onyewu.
Don't fret the fact that Mikkel Diskerud is not starting Rosenborg's important Europa League group match with Metalist Kharkiv tonight, he has not been dropped. I've been informed that he took a good stamp to the foot in their weekend loss and the club is hoping to give him a full night off so he can be in better shape come Sunday's league tilt with Fredrikstad.
Sunderland youngster Connor Wickham bagged his first England under 21 goal in last night's 1-0 win over Norway. The ex-Ipswich striker pounced on indecision in the Norwegian defence to score the only goal of the game. The victory ensured England topped their European Under 21 Championships qualifying group and will be seeded in today's play-off [.
England under 21s secured a 2-0 win in Azerbaijan last night to put themselves top of their
qualification group with one game to play. Tottenham defender Steven Caulker headed in the opening
goal in Baku in front of a bumper crowd of 214. Liverpool's Jonjo Shelvey added a second goal to
secure victory for Stuart [.
Being as Klinsi seems a bit allergic to playing central midfielders with possession/playmaking
capabilities, I am here to provide him some antihistamine. It's a new clip of nearly every goal and
assist notched by Mikkel Diskerud for club and country. I say "nearly" because it is missing one
Stabaek and one Gent assist.
Mix Diskerud is the latest hero for Rosenborg, pushing the club into the Europa League group stage.
With games against fellow American Terrence Boyd's Rapid Vienna, Germany's Bayer Leverkusen, and
Ukraine's FC Metalist looming, let's learn a little more about Norway's biggest club. Why Are We
Here? After making 81 appearances for Stabaek, Mix Diskerud went on loan to Belgium's Gent in 2012.
Team USA brings it to North Korea and everyone goes, "Really?"Surprising everyone on the planet,
Team USA, with some confidence, but assloads of poorly served balls, came out on top of the North
Koreans in their quarterfinal match. I did not expect this. I still think it was a boring game, but
that's only because this team does little for me stylistically, and I really anticipated the North
Koreans putting them to shame from the get go.
Title holders Germany are through to the next round of the U-20 Women's World Cup and boy, oh
boy, will they be facing an opponent worthy of the final match-up itself : Japan! The
German girls thrashed Norway 4-0 in Saitama, a squad that has been trying to replicate their 1995
Women's World Cup success for more than a decade.
This should be just about the best goal you see this year, and if it doesn't make the FIFA shortlist, well then shame on Sepp Blatter's hot pants. Her name is Elisabeth Jeppesen and she plays in Norway. The female domestic league in Norway isn't going to get the most media exposure in the world, and that's where the internet and 0.

This is verging on propaganda, isn't it? The owners of a nursery in Norway are such big Arsenal fans that they have themed their place of education on their favourite football team. The Ruselokka barnehage nursery was the subject of a news report in Oslo, which interviewed some of the children. The kids are dressed [.
