After a tough season with Arsenal Norwegian Creative playmaker Martin Odegaard is ready to represent his nation. With his deft touch, technique, dribbling ability, vision and range of passing, as well as his ability to provide precise, bending deliveries from dead balls and set pieces he can get through any defense.
Earlier days he was compared to Mesut Ozil. Ødegaard is an energetic, effective presser of the ball, often covering large distances in order to help his team win back possession. In March 2021, Ødegaard was appointed as the captain for the national men’s team by the new manager Stale Solbakken.
