Career statistics

International goals

The UEFA Euro 2012 qualifier match against Denmark on 26 March 2011 was to be his last match for Norway. In total he achieved 79 caps – scoring 21 goals.[9]

Iversen played regularly for the national team, until he in August 2008 overslept to a meeting with the squad that was to play a friendly match against Republic of Ireland on 20 August 2008 and was sent home by the national team coach Åge Hareide.[15] Nevertheless, Iversen was called up for the next squad for the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Iceland where he scored Norway's two goals.

In Norway's first match in a UEFA European Football Championship, Iversen scored the match-winning goal against Spain with a header.[13] Iversen's goal is still Norway's only goal in a UEFA European Football Championship.[14]

Later the same year, he made his debut for the senior team in the UEFA Euro 2000 qualifier against Albania. He scored his first international goal on 20 May 1999 in the friendly match against Jamaica, a game Norway won 6–0.[9]

Iversen was a regular for the Norway U-21[9] and was a major contributor for the team that earned a third place in the 1998 UEFA U-21 Championship, by scoring Norway's all three goals during the championship, including two goals in the third-place match against Netherlands U-21.[10][11] In total, he played 23 matches for the U-21 team, and scored 17 goals, a record.[12]

Iversen joined Rosenborg for the third time in his career on 15 February 2012. He signed a performance-based one-year contract, with an option for one more year, and stated that he had returned to win the league.[7] In November 2012 he decided to retire from football.[8]
