Valerenga

FOOTBALL can be pretty ridiculous at times and a recent match in Norway took the biscuit, with a professional team playing against a team made up of 22 amateurs.

Norwegian Premier League outfit Valerenga (mid-table nothingness, if you’re wondering) took on a side twice their size for a television series called Golden Goal.

The amateur side had some invented formations, playing two goalkeepers and an 8-8-4 formation. They defended direct freekicks with two banks of walls and when it came to attacking a corner, they sent 15 players in the box to try and confuse the pro outfit.
