The Liberian workhouse was on fire in Monday Norwegian Topflight League opening match between Velerenga and Kristiansund.

Sam Johnson began his career on a firing note in Norway scoring a vital goal that saw his side Velerenga clinched all three points away to Kristiansund on Monday night.

Johnson who joined Vålerenga at the end of January in a deal worth 3.4 m scored in the 63rd minute after both sides have failed on some glamming opportunities.

Kristiansund made a bad effort to clear a free kick and, after being headed by two defenders, and the unmarked Lone Star attacker lighted the stadium to the delight of the 110 Velerenga supporters inside the stand.

Velerenga will be at home to Odd this weekend.

Johnson bided farewell to Asian football earlier this year after a short stay with Chinese League one side Wuhan Zall   to return to Europe.


Johnson saw his big money move to China cut short when Wuhan Zall put an end to his three and a half year deal after completing one and half year. He joined the Chinese club in July 2016 and made a quick impact as he went on to score six goals in 11 games to help Wuhan Zall move off the bottom of the table. However, he was surprisingly moved off the starting team by coaches.
