SK Brann beats the crap out of Rosenborg

The Norwegian league 2011 had its official kick-off already on friday, but the main match of the round wasn't until sunday at 20.00 CET.

SK Brann from Bergen has been in the press a lot lately, especially within articles with predictions of which teams who will not be in the league, Tippeligaen, next year.

Rosenborg has been named favorites for years along with Vålerenga, and Rosenborg also won the league in 2010.

The champions with their first defeat in 33 matches

(AP) (Brann - Rosenborg 2-1) Kim Ojo (22) used only 10 minutes to introduce himself to the football in Norway. There were literally sparks from nigerian footballer shoulders at Brann Stadion.

He came free from Nybergsund this winter, and had never played at a higher level than Norwegian 1. division.

After ten minutes he exploited that Daniel Örlund and Jim Larsen hesitated, and headed Erik Mjelde pass into the net.

Ojo was also involved when the great talent Mushaga Bakenga butted into the reduction to 2-1. Rosenborg never came closer than that one goal.

Brann is tipped by many at the bottom, and the VG microscope, they were predicted relegation. In the rehearsal before the league start, the Bergen team lost 3-1 against Nest-Sotra. Rosenborg, on their side is tipped at the opposite end - at the top of the table.

I work at Brann Stadion, and the crowd was so amazing tonight. This match is the 2nd biggest match of the season, and to beat them feels so fucking good. Can we get a TIPPELIGAEN tag plz.

Stuart Holden out for 6 months

Bolton Wanderers midfielder Stuart Holden has been ruled out for six months as a result of the injury he sustained in a challenge on Saturday.

Holden was rushed to hospital following a 1-0 defeat to Manchester United as a tackle from Jonny Evans, which drew a red card, left him with a nasty gash on his right knee.

So sad he's missing the Gold Cup with USA this summer. I feel like he always gets injured right before he gets to play with the NT. He also posted on his Twitter that he's having surgery in London today. Good luck, Stu!

Well look who's back ...


The Dutch football association said the former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward had been called up with Luuk de Jong and Jeremain Lens to replace the injured Arjen Robben, Theo Janssen and Klaas Jan Huntelaar.

The Netherlands play away to Hungary on March 25 before the return at the Amsterdam Arena on the 29th.

A groin problem has ruled Bayern Munich winger Robben out of what would have been his first appearance for the Dutch team since they lost the World Cup final to Spain in South Africa last year.

Janssen has a knee injury while Huntelaar turned up in Noordwijk on Monday for the start of the training camp but proved not fit enough for the double header.

The coach had dropped a hint last week that Van Nistelrooy, who now plays for Hamburg, could be called up as a replacement for Huntelaar.
