† Appearances (Goals).
Odd "Ivers" Iversen (6 November 1945 – 29 December 2014) was a Norwegian footballer, notable for his former record of 158 goals in Norwegian top tier football, as well as his still-standing record of 30 goals in a single season.
Iversen began his career in Rosenborg in 1964, and would spend twelve of his eighteen years as a top tier footballer in the club. He is often regarded as one of the greatest Norwegian footballers ever, and was the top goalscorer four times in the Norwegian top division (1967, 1968, 1969 and 1979). Upon retirement in 1982, he became the first Norwegian player in history to get a testimonial match by his club (Rosenborg). At the time of his death he still held the record of most goals scored in one season (30 goals in 18 matches), a record that as of December 2014 still stands. During his career as a footballer he scored 158 goals in the top division, a record that stood for more than 20 years until it was broken by Petter Belsvik (159) in 2003. Since then, Harald Martin Brattbakk (166) and Sigurd Rushfeldt (172) have also passed Iversen in the all-time goalscoring chart.
