Fallen Real Madrid wonder boy Martin Odegaard provided a startling reminder of his talents this weekend with a stunning free-kick for Vitesse Arnhem.
Odegaard, 19, is currently experiencing another loan spell in the Eredivise to follow on from 2017/18’s experience at Heerenveen. He had yet to net in eight previous top-flight appearances for his current temporary employers, but this ended in spectacular fashion on Saturday.
The Norway playmaker – his nation’s youngest-ever international – deftly curled in an unstoppable set-piece from 25 yards out, leaving Utrecht goalkeeper David Jensen stranded. This goal made it 2-0 in a match that Vitesse would eventually win 2-1.
Madrid beat a host of Europe’s biggest clubs to Odegaard’s signature from Stromsgodset in January 2015. He has, however, only made one La Liga appearance – May 23, 2016’s final fixture against Getafe.
