Klaksvik is getting closer to the group stage of the main European Cup. Now defeated by Molde.
The football information field in Russia on the night of August 8 was taken over by Spartak, but the crazy match in the Russian Cup is not the only story worthy of attention. At the same time, Klaksvik and Molde played in the third qualifying round of the Champions League. This is not a game you (and we) would have thought to see. And yet it was worth it.
You know Molde, this is a pretty well known Norwegian team. What is Klaksvik? This is a Faroese team, which actually deprived Stanislav Cherchesov of work. In the 1st qualifying round of the Champions League, Klaksvik (the cost of the squad is 2.68 million euros) took out Ferencvaros (53.4 million euros), which was headed only by the former head coach of the Russian team. Actually, this was the end of Cherchesov’s work in Hungary.
“I offered 20 sheep for Ronaldo.” Cherchesov left the club with fishermen and painters without work.
In the second round, Klaksvik defeated the Swede Hacken. 0:0 at home, 3:3 in the second leg away and victory in the penalty shootout. Molde was next in line. It seemed that the fairy tale was finally over, but for now she is alive. Because Klaksvik took and won the first home game with a score of 2:1. And, of course, he did it in a special way.
The first half passed without goals, and at the start of the second, Molde opened the scoring. It is not the best scenario, because the coach can no longer make changes in the locker room. Now look what happened next:
64th minute. Klaksvik winger Arnie Fredriksberg picks up the ball in the corner of the penalty area, takes a few steps forward, turns around and suddenly shoots into the nearest corner. The goalkeeper, like all the other players, expected a serve and did not drag it. 1:1;

minute 86. Klaksvik receives a counterattack, Fredriksberg (yes, him again) launches from his midfield, receives a pass, takes a few more steps and scores nine with his right foot from the penalty line. Even though he is left handed. 2:1.

Result: Klaksvik win before the second leg. If the team maintains the advantage, it will advance to the playoff round, that is, it will be one step away from the group stage of the Champions League. At least participation in the main tournament of the Europa League is also guaranteed.
But this is not the whole story, because Fredriksberg, who scored a double in the match against Molde, deserves special attention. Arnie is 31 years old, Transfermarkt estimates him at €175 thousand Meanwhile, in the current rating, the winger has six goals in five games. He scored twice in the most important matches: before the match with Molde, he became the hero of the responses with Ferencváros and Hacken.

What if we told you that soccer isn’t even Fredricksburg’s main job? Arnie works full time at the bank and, like many other people, spends his regular day in a crowded office. In addition, Fredriksberg’s profile on the social network is related to football only because of a photograph in which he poses in uniform with a child and a medal. The description also indicates the experience of working in two banks. Also mentioned is his period of employment as a worker in a fish farming company.
In general, the banker removed the former Cherchesov team. And the same banker is now dragging his club into European competition. It seems that sooner or later a movie will be made about Fredricksburg. Although there is still one more relevant show left: the return match between Molde and Klaksvik, which will take place on August 15.
Cherchesov was severely criticized for turning away from this genius:
“Great shame.” Cherchesov and Ferencváros are crushed in Hungary by the exit of the Champions League
