thumbnail Hello,

Three days shy of his 21st birthday, the Michigan native found an early goal against Valeranga.

United States youth national team member Joshua Gatt scored his sixth goal of the season for reigning Tippeligaen champion Molde FK, netting the winner as MFK defeated Valeranga 2-0.

He found the net in just the third minute against Valeranga, which featured fellow American Chad Barrett, and was substituted off by manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer as Molde seeks to defend its 2011 Tippeligaen title amidst staunch challenges from Stromsgodset Drammen and Roseborg BK.

Michigan-born Gatt, who turns 21 years old on August 29, has played for the United States at various youth levels and is considered a potential future star.
