He played several seasons for Bodø/Glimt, whom he joined from Skånland og Omegn IF, but was transferred to Tromsø ahead of the 2007 season.

Tromsø[edit]

During his first year as he was meant as a replacement for Patrice Bernier at the central midfield, but impressed in the right back position.

After three seasons with Club Brugge, Høgli agreed on 31 January 2014 to join the Danish club F.C. Copenhagen once his contract expires on 1 July 2014.[1]

He made his debut in the Danish Superliga on July 20, 2014 in a match against Silkeborg IF

He has been capped for the Norwegian under-21 national team[2] and was joint top scorer at the 2006 VIVA World Cup for Sápmi. On 20 August 2008, Høgli got his debut for Norway in a friendly match against Ireland.

Høgli was picked by national coach Egil "Drillo" Olsen for the team vs Germany in autumn 2009.

Høgli received the Gold Watch after his 25th cap, in the friendly against England national football team on 26 May 2012, but he had to leave the pitch after 37-minute due to a tackle from Steven Gerrard.
