Club career

Lyn

Born and brought up in Oslo,[2] Hansen played for Lyn up to age 15, and was a part of the team that won the under-16 girls' class in the Norway Cup.[3]

Stabæk

She transferred to Stabæk in August 2010, and made her Toppserien debut the same week, as a 73rd-minute substitute in the match against FK Donn. Hansen made an assist as Stabæk won 3–0.[4] Stabæk won the league title later that year with a 3–0 home win over Trondheims-Ørn.[5] She was a part of Stabæk's 2011 Norwegian Women's Cup winning team, who beat Røa on penalties after extra time. Hansen assisted Katrine Pedersen's equalizer during the extra time, but was the only Stabæk player to miss in the shoot out.[6]

Tyresö

Playing for Tyresö in 2013

In August 2013 Hansen signed for Swedish Damallsvenskan champions Tyresö FF.[7] In the second half of the season she started five of her seven league appearances and scored three goals.[8] She also helped Tyresö qualify for the 2013–14 UEFA Women's Champions League quarter finals.

Hansen returned to Stabæk in January 2014 to complete her high school education, as she did not get the grades necessary to do so in Sweden. She continued to be monitored by several leading European clubs and intended to move away again after finishing school in June 2014. Realising that female footballers do not earn enough money to retire on, Hansen was planning for her career after football. At Stabæk she arranged to play Toppserien matches for the women's team while training with the male youth teams.[9]

Wolfsburg

On 8 May 2014, German club VfL Wolfsburg announced they had signed a two-year contract with Hansen.[10] Norwegian media stated her annual salary as around £100,000.[11]

Barcelona

In May 2019, it was announced Hansen had signed with FC Barcelona on a two-year contract.[12]

International career

In 2011, 16-year-old Hansen was a part of the Norwegian under-19 team who finished as runners-up in the 2011 UEFA Women's U-19 Championship, after losing the final against Germany. Hansen was also included in the Norwegian squad for the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in Japan, where the team reached the quarter-final.[13]

She made her senior debut for Norway against Belgium in November 2011.[14] In June 2012 Hansen scored her first senior international goal in an 11–0 rout of Bulgaria, a match in which she also assisted more than half of Norway's goals.[15]

Hansen was named in Norway's squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2013 by veteran coach Even Pellerud.[16] Winger Hansen and fellow teenager Ada Hegerberg at centre forward were important players in the Norwegian team which reached the competition final.[17][18] In the final at Friends Arena, Hansen won a 61st-minute penalty after drawing a foul from Saskia Bartusiak, but Germany's goalkeeper Nadine Angerer made her second penalty save of the match. Anja Mittag's goal gave the Germans their sixth successive title.[19]

She was ruled out of the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup after failing to recover from a serious knee injury in time for the competition.[20]
