While most of the world had their eyes on Tuesday’s Champions League action, in Norway’s second division Ham Kam took on Kongsvinger in a match that usually would have been totally ignored. That was until Tommy Oren cracked home an incredible volley with just ten minutes left on the clock.
Tommy Oren, a forgettable 29-year-old midfielder who has spent his life knocking around in Norway’s lower regions, will now finally get worldwide attention.
From a seeming inconsequential throw-on down the right, the ball was headed infield where Oren collected possession 35-yards from goal. Immediately a Kongsvinger defender went to close down the number eight, only for Oren to delicately lift the ball over his opponent and continue to advance forward.
And then came the genius. With the ball dropping Oren opted to try his luck with his left peg, volleying a stunner into the near post for a world-class goal.
