Arnold Origi made a winning start to life in the Norwegian topflight, taking a full part in his side Fredrikstad's 3-1 win over Aalesund in the Norwegian Eliteserien on Sunday 20 November 2011.
They say a week is a long time in football, and so it has proved for Origi.
The Harambee Stars goalkeeper was on his way to the Cecafa Senior Challlenge Cup in Tanzania, having completed his domestic season with Moss FK in the third tier, but his plans were swayed, after receiving a phone call from Fredrikstad, meaning four days later he was featuring in the league.
A turn around indeed.
Having been given the chance to shine at the top level, Origi did not dissapoint the home crowd at the Nye Fredrik Stadion, putting in a solid display, to lead his side to victory.
The game itself, was a dull affair in the first period, but came to life in the second, with all four goals coming in the dying moments.
James Keene gave the home side the lead in the 74th minute, with Tarik Elyounoussi adding the second three minutes later. Magnus Olsen pulled a goal back for the visitors on 82, setting up a frantic last few moments, but the home side eventually prevailed with substitute Celso Borges scoring from the spot in injury time to seal the three points.
The win sees Fredrikstad up to position 12 in the standings, with 35 points from 29 games, way behind leaders Molde who are on 58, but sees them clear of relegation, which they were threatened with last week.
Lillestrom will be thieir final destination for the season, where they travel to on Sunday 27 November 2011, with Origi primed to be in goal.
