Martin Ødegaard

Usually I'd be wary of hyping a 15-year old kid. But he's already playing in the Norwegian Top League for Strømsgodset and has shown quite impressive skills...might even make a debut soon for the NT. Great close control. Wouldn't be surprised if this guy is the real deal.


Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

In fact he has already been called up for the senior national team for a friendly vs UAE on 27th August. He might make his international debut at the age of 15 years and 253 days.

It would be Norway's all time record and must be pretty close to European all time record too.

He's got great technique and amazing patience for someone that young. If he can escape serious injuries in the crucial next five or so years, he'll become a big star.

Irriducibili? No thanks, I'm a fan of Lazio.

Apparently the youngest international ever in Europe is Samuel Johnston (Ireland) who debuted in 1882 (p) aged 15 years 154 days. Somebody on the internet also claimed József Horváth (Hungary) made his debut younger than Ødegaard might...however the only József Horváth I found debuted for Hungary aged 25 so I wonder if somebody got their math wrong.

So Ødegaard might become the 2nd youngest European ever to make his international debut...and the youngest during the last 131 years.

The squad they've called up is only domestic players however, he's not getting into the strongest Norway squad. Still a huge achievement at 15.

People downplaying his talent have to remember just how young the boy is. Ok, Norwegian football isn't all that, but it's still a proper professional league. Easily more competitive than any reserve matches.

I'd guess that the Norwegian wages are pretty similar. They were slightly higher a few years ago but the salaries in Norwegian football have been dropping a bit in recent years.

Yeah if he goes to City he could end up starting for Stoke.

At least the assistant manager wouldn't try shagging his missus. Although she's probably too young. I'd be more concerned if Stevie is nearby.

He's a lost cause when it comes to pretty boys. Why do you think CRom is his bff?

Anyway, what's the track behind this video?
