    When Leganger played for FCK she had six goals to her goal against Bayer Leverkusen in april 2009. FCK won 21-9. Leganger left the goal to Christina Pedersen with seven minutes left to play. And when she played for Norway, she has nine goals to her goal against Hypo in 1994. Yes, this game against Byåsen was superb – again! But it`s not the first time she plays like this. Leganger is the best goalkeeper in the world – even today.
