Good Norwegian footballers who were born in 1991 will be followed for ten years by NTNU and the Norwegian Football Association.

Scientists will look at what players did beginning in their early teens, their relationships with their coaches, training and development, the players’ views of themselves and of the difference between playing in Norway and abroad. The purpose is to quantify the kinds of characteristics that a football talent has over time.
