Notes - Very rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Olsen in the friendly match against Finland played at Olympiastadion, Helsinki on the 16th August 2000. After playing each other almost annually from the 1920's onwards the sides had only met due to World Cup Qualifying in '97 and had not faced each other in a friendly since 1982. Norway were undone here by Finnish master Jari Litmanen who bagged a brace in a 3-1 victory for the hosts. Olsen had won the Kniksen award three years in a row between 1997-99 and his great form saw Spanish outfit Sevilla come calling in the summer of 2000. The former Stabæk had been to Euro 2000 as back-up to Thomas Myhre and won 26 caps in total in his international career
