Such were the opening words of one of the most famous pieces of sports commentary ever. The tirade was shouted by Norwegian football-commentator Bjørge Lillelien in 1981, after Norway had sensationally beaten England in a World Cup qualifying match in Oslo.
Lillelien’s oratory serves to illustrate not only the grandiose position football has in Norwegian society, but it also says something about the importance of football in the relationship between Britain and Norway.
This is why the first 20-page issue of British Politics Review is devoted to the role of football in British politics and society.
