Strandli was recognised as a fast and physically strong striker. After success in IK Start, he signed for league champions Leeds United in 1993 and scored on his debut, coming off the bench against Middlesbrough. Still, he was not able to hold down a regular first team place.
He had been loaned to IK Start from May to July 1993, and in 1994 he was loaned to SK Brann, signing a permanent deal ahead of the 1995 season. After this earned success in Lillestrøm SK, scoring 15 times in 38 league games. This earned him a move to the Greek top club Panathinaikos.
His last professional club was AaB before he was forced to retire due to a groin injury. During his injury spell he received guidance from mental coach Christian M. Larsen. The coaching techniques Strandli learned at this stage of his career is believed to have helped him come back from injury. He made a return in 2009 with fellow footballer Andreas Lund when both joined FC Lund, a club in the Norwegian sixth tier as a central defender.
