Ghanaian forward Dominic Adiyiah and his Ivorian teammates midfielder Konan Kouadio and striker Ismael Beko Fofana are runners-up this season in Norway's premier football championship. With just one match remaining it is impossible for Fredrikstad to relinquish the second spot after losing out to eventual champions Staebeck.

Meanwhile, Nigerian striker Abiola Douda could become a champion in Sweden in his first season. The Swedish top league has two more matches to go but his club Kalmar still leads rivals Elfsborg with three points.
