U.S. Under-20 winger Josh Gatt scored his first two professional goals with top-flight Norwegian club Molde FK and had a hand in setting up a third in a 7-1 victory over third-tier Tiller in a domestic cup match on Wednesday.
Gatt and American U-20 left back Sean Cunningham each started and went the distance for Molde, which advanced to the Round of 16 in the tournament. To learn more about the 19-year-old Gatt, check out this interview he did with Molde's Web site.
Mikkel Diskerud's Stabaek fell to second-tier Honefoss, 3-1, in another Norwegian Cup game on Wednesday and is out of the competition. Diskerud went 90 minutes on the left wing in the loss.
What do you think about Gatt getting on the board? Hoping to see big things from him down the road?

im guessing gyau is black?
Watched Gatt’s interview on Molde’s website and seems to be a nice and grounded (humble) gent who is looking to work hard. I hope that he keeps that attitude. With Ole Gunnar as the manager, if he impresses and gets good reviews from Ole, that is a very credible source. Hopefully Gatt will be exposed to good setup where he can grow his technical skills, build his tactical understanding of the European game, improve his physical side/fitness and set in place good other professional habits, such as nutrition, sleep, etc.
Not a reserve match but the team is a semi-pro club from the 3rd division.
They have a reserve cup over there?
Those crazy Scandinavians!!!
as great as this is… it was a reserve match.
Actually wonder if he’s the man to replace Landon on the wing for the US. He’s a tireless runner, has good skill, finishing. Unlikely to ever be as good, but still quite promising.
You’re right. The other blowouts I’m thinking of came in the cup matches as well. My bad! Hope to see Gatt and Gyau in the senior team fold next year!
“If you don’t quit, yeaaaaah.
If you don’t stop, yeaaaaah.
I’m lettin my Gatt pop…
CUZ ITS 1-8-7 IN A THIRD-TIER CUP!!”
dope. Snoop and Dre would be proud. (if only U-20s had made the World Cup…damn you Rongen. I’m still not over it)
See below : )
Gatt & Gyau = Donovan & Beasley Version 2.0 ?
Let the hype snowball start arollin’…
Left back? Left back? Did you say left back? CAP HIM! Get him in for the gold cup!
It’s not a league, it’s a cup featuring teams from different levels, so, yeah, blowouts will happen, upsets to judgeing from Stabaek’s loss.
There sure seems to be a lot of blow outs in that league. Good for Gatt though, although with that many goals it would be disappointing if he wasn’t involved in any of them.
Gatt! Gatt! The sound of bullets going into the goal!!!
Anything to get the confidence up for our boys. Glad to see Sean go the distance as well.
Keep it up!!
