While the world's best battle for glory is out in Brazil, Skaugum was the stage of a match today. Together with the Norwegian Football Association, the Crown Prince Family hosted a friendly match between Røa Unified and Team Norway.
The aim was to focus on grassroots football, and how important is the integration for the sport. And not least: that football is first and foremost should be fun.

It was very even between the teams, and after two innings score 5-5. It took extra time and golden goal to to break the deadlock.
Match's major profile was Røa's Pål Berntsen, with number eleven on the back. He scored four of Røa six goals and, naturally enough named player of the match.
