Career[edit]

Lie was born in Steinkjer and grew up in Namdalseid in Nord Trøndelag, where she started her football career with three local clubs, Namdalseid, Beitstad and Verdal. She joined Trondheims-Ørn in 1999.

Lie was the team's top scorer in four consecutive seasons from 2006 to 2009 and also became top scorer in the 2007 Toppserien.[1]

With Trondheims-Ørn, Lie won the Toppserien in 2000, 2001 and 2003, and the Norwegian Women's Cup in 1999, 2001 and 2003. The team also became runner-up in the Toppserien in 1999, 2004 and 2006, as well as in the 2010 Norwegian Women's Cup.

Lie signed a two-year contract extension to continue with Trondheims-Ørn in February 2012, and after 15 seasons with the club she played her last match at home when she got seven minutes as a substitute against Klepp in October 2013. Her last match before her retirement was the last match of the 2013 Toppserien season, away against Lillestrøm.[1]

For Norway, Lie played 12 matches and scored seven goals for the Under-21 team between 1999 and 2001.[2] In 2007, the same year as she became top goalscorer in the Toppserien, she made her debut for the senior national team against Finland.[1] She was a member of the Norwegian squad for the 2009 UEFA Women's European Championship, and played a total of 16 matches for the Norway, scoring one goal, between 2007 and 2009.[2]
