Diskerud scores to cap Rosenborg romp

Rosenborg BK jumped into the top spot of Eliteserien on Friday with a big victory over Haugesund, and Mix Diskerud contributed to the fun by netting his first league goal for the club.

Diskerud capped the scoring in Rosenborg's 5-2 win over Haugesund on Friday, sliding in from close range to redirect a low cross in the 88th minute of the match. The goal was Diskerud's second across all competitions since joining the club this past summer, as he also tallied an all-important goal in the Europa League play-off round last month.

Rosenborg's win now gives them 46 points on the season, just one more than second-place Moldke FK, who still have yet to play this weekend. The Eliteserien champions earn a berth for next season's Champions League qualifiers, while the runner-up goes straight into the 2013-2014 Europa League.

You can see Diskerud's goal here at the 4:29 mark.

What do you think of Diskerud's finish? Do you see Rosenborg winning the Eliteserien title this year? Think Diskerud should will earn a U.S. call-up in the near future?
