Former striker Litex hit a World Cup member 2018 with a beautiful goal
The finalist of the upcoming world championship, Iceland retreated to Norway by 2: 3 in one of its last controls before leaving for Russia. Levski’s defender Holmar Eyolfson stayed on the bench and did not appear in the game, but his footprint on the match left another footballer familiar in Bulgaria. Former Litex striker Bjorn Yonsen opened the score in the 15th minute and strengthened his excellent form when he scored 19 goals for Day Haag in the Dutch Eredivisie season.
New York-born Yonsen chose last year to play for Norway, although he has dual citizenship and could represent the United States. He scored after a quarter hour of play with a powerful kick from the border of the penalty area, which was unbeaten for the home keeper Frederick Shram.
The Icelanders equalized in the 30th minute with Alfred Fínbogson’s penalty shot, and in the middle of the second half, Gilfigh Sigurdsson made 2: 1 with a close addition. Before that, Bjorn Jonsson hit the beam with his head.
The Norwegians, who are rivals of Bulgaria in the League of Nations, did not surrender. In the 80th minute, Joshua King stole the ball from the goalie and quietly stretched the net, and in the 85th Alexandr Serrallot was forgotten in the penalty area and with his left foot brought the victory of the team led by Lars Lagerback.
