From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Hallvar Thoresen (born April 12, 1957) is a former Norwegian footballer. The son of former Norwegian international Gunnar Thoresen, Hallvar Thoresen was central in 1980's Norwegian football.

He played 50 matches for the Norway national football team, and scored 9 goals, one of which secured the historic victory over England in 1981. Thoresen is among the six Norwegian internationals who have never played in the Norwegian Premier League.

Thoresen started his career in Larvik Turn, but travelled abroad at the age of seventeen, and soon became a regular at FC Twente in the Netherlands. They won the Dutch Cup in 1977, and Thoresen was bought by giants PSV Eindhoven. Helping capturing three league titles, Thoresen was a key player for seven years until he returned to Norway and played for Frigg in the lower divisions. Troubled by an injury, he was forced to retire from his playing career shortly thereafter.

He did assume the coaching position at Frigg, later moving on to coach larger clubs like Brann, Strømsgodset, Hønefoss and Lillestrøm (assistant). He is currently in charge of the Norwegian U21 team.
