Martin Odegaard

Recommended Posts

Martin Odegaard, a 15 year old wonderkid for the defending Norwegian champions Stromgodset. Odegaard is listed on the SM database as an attacking midfielder/forward that can play on the right side. He is rated as a 72 worth only 70k. At age 13, he played for Godset's third team and their junior team which sometimes trains with the first team. He had staunch interest from Bayern and Man United but remained in Norway to complete his education first. Just after his 15th birthday, Godset announced he would be a part of the first team, but no formal contract was signed. It was also said, as part of the agreement, that Odegaard will also train occasionally with Lorenskog IF, where his father is an assistant manager. Odegaard made his debut on April 13th, 2014, becoming the youngest player to ever appear in a Tippeligaen match. As a result of his good performances, Godset offered him a two year professional contract, which he signed on May 5th, 2014. 11 days later, he scored his first professional goal, which also made him the youngest player to ever score in the Tippeligaen. He scored his 2nd goal, the winner in a 2-1 win against FK Haugesund on June 9th, 2014.

A 15 year old already producing this high level of play can only look forward to his future career. Snap him up!

Re: Martin Odegaard

Snapped him up in 1 of my game worlds.

Seems a player with lots of potential.

I think he should go in the future to Ajax, PSV, Benfica, Sporting CP, a place where he can develop well, and challenge for spots for a team in European football :)

Re: Martin Odegaard

Surely a nice rise is due? By the way' date=' finally was able to find this video of his dribbling skill and goal against Haugesund. Watched the match live, but couldn't find the video for a while.

He already has around 10 games on his feet.Believe it or not if he plays 5-6 more games, he may hit 80 at the age of 15 yrs old. This should be some kind of a record on SM though!

Well Iver Fossum is 17 and 77 rated and plays for Godset regularly as well(he gave Odegaard the assist in the recent video) so yes Odegaard has a chance to hit 80 by 15 years old since he does not even turn 16 years old until December!

Re: Martin Odegaard

75 > 77 at the age of 15. Is he really that good?

He can be good, but he's also very hyped that's why had his rating reviewed 2 times in just one month, with a handful of games between reviews. While there is players that player entire seasons, champions league games included, and don't get reviewed for a year, and in better/equal championships.

Re: Martin Odegaard

Odegaard came off the bench last night in Norway's 2-1 win against Bulgaria in their Euro 2016 qualifier. Still at age 15, he is the youngest player to appear in a European Championship Qualifier. He now has 2 full fledged caps for the senior side, and keep in mind, he does not turn 16 until December...

Re: Martin Odegaard

Odegaard scored twice in the 2-1 win over Lillestrom.

His stats since making his debut for Stromgodset:

20 appearances, 11 starts, 5 goals, 6 assists

Keep in mind he still has two months before he turns 16... now attracting staunch interest from Man City and Man United, as well as Juventus and Madrid.
