He was the footballer for Odds BK who scored with header from his own half of the field.

That goal by Jone Samuelsen is now ratified as the world's longest distance goal with a header. Just five weeks after Samuelsen's goal for Odd Grenland vs Tromsų, a Japanese second division player named 植田 龍仁朗 (Ueda Ryujiro) headed in from his own half for Fagiano Okayama vs Yokohama.

Ueda-san's goal was initially claimed as a new world's record, but subsequent remeasurement of both goals using lasers established that Herr Samuelsen has the record by 33 centimeters.

The Samuelsen goal is linked above; the Ueda goal (and the piece of pretty awful goalkeeping which allowed it to happen) can be seen here. (Commentary is in Japanese.)
