Odegaard played brilliantly in his very first match, where he showed, both skill and great team work. He played 65 minutes, at the position of attacking midfielder, against Beijing Guoan in a friendly match.
Only 16 year old kid played under the observation of former Madrid man Zinedine Zidane, and after the match Real boss Carlo Ancelotti announced his name in Champions League squad, against Schalke.
It doesn't matter that Odegaard manages to strike a goal, but he played a big role in two of their three goals. Zidane and fellow reserve coaches were very happy with his performance.
He is playing as midfielder and wearing 10 number shirt.
Norwegian signed from Stromsgodset, few days before, for £2.5 million and £80000 per weak, will make his full debut against Athletic Bilbao B on 8 February.
If he will be able to play for Real Madrid against schalke in Champions League, Odegaard would become the youngest player in history to play in Champions League. He is also the youngest player in football history who played for country.
