Born in Lørenskog, Norway, Hege Riise is one of only 3 women to have won the Olympics, World Cup and European Championship. Referred to as “the women with six pairs of eyes” due to her uncanny ability to read and dictate play from midfield, Riise once compared her career to a good red wine, reflecting that “it kept on improving with age”.
