There weren’t many bright-spots for Norway yesterday, as they were thrashed 5-1 by Croatia in their Euro 2016 qualifier, but the performance of 16-year-old Real Madrid starlet Martin Odegaard was a sight to behold, as he once again showed that there’s plenty more to come!

The attacking midfielder joined the Spanish giants in January, and is already impressing for the club’s ‘B-team’. The youngest player to ever play for Norway has already become a key player for his country, with five caps to his name.
We could well see him in France next summer, despite yesterday’s defeat. Norway had previously won their first three qualifying games, and still sit third in their group, a point behind Italy and yesterday’s opponents Croatia.
Odegaard played the entire game on Saturday, impressing with his dazzling footwork that at least gave the opposition something to think about. You can check out a clip of his best moments below…
