Norwegian sport/comedy show Golden Goal have pioneered various variations on the plain old vanilla football theme over the past few years – famously giving exposure to alternative disciplines such as the now commonplace Bubble Football and Electric Shock Football.

Their latest experiment saw the Golden Goal chaps attempting to answer that age-old query: could a team of 22 largely talentless amateur players (including two goalkeepers) beat a standard team of 11 professional footballers?

With a little help from one of Norway’s top sides, Valerenga, the Golden Goal team set about proving once and for all that the answer is a resounding “no”.

    Never mind Chris, it’s the first time I’ve seen it anyway!

    Love the, let’s just say “larger than life” ref, that awesome goal for the amateurs and at full-time “SLUTT” comes up on screen!

    I had fun watching the video and now I know the Norwegian word for “full time” is SLUTT :D
