Martin Odegaard is just fifteen and has had tongues wagging for some time. Now he is set to make football history in Norway.

The teenager has been included in the Norwegian squad for an international friendly against the United Arab Emirates at the end of this month.

If he pulls on his country’s jersey he will become the youngest to do so.

The midfielder caught the eye with his performances for champions Stromsgodset this season.

“This is a dream come true, I am shocked,” said the teenager who has been watched by clubs like Juventus and Manchester City.
