[WPS] FC Gold Pride has signed midfielder Solveig Gulbrandsen, the most capped player on the Norwegian national team, for the 2010 season. With this signing, Gulbrandsen, who plays for Stabaek IF of Norway's Toppserien, becomes the first Norwegian player in WPS history.
 
"Through the years, Gulbrandsen has asserted herself as one of Scandinavia's most respected players and one of Norway's most talented playmakers and finishers," said FC Gold Pride coach Albertin Montoya. "Her experience, skills and leadership will help our team immensely.  She is a great fit for our team system and our organization."

Only 28, Gulbrandsen has 139 caps, which includes three World Cups (1999, 2003, 2007), two Olympic Games (2000, 2008), and three UEFA Women's Championships (2001, 2005, 2009).  

Gulbrandsen is married to Espen Andreassen, a former trainer with Kolbotn women's team, and gave birth to their first child, a son named Theodor, in June 2008.
