Martin Odegaard Struggles for Norway Raise Questions for Arsenal

Martin Odegaard

Arsenal midfielder Martin Odegaard:

Recently found, Martin Odegaard under scrutiny after a disappointing performance in Norway’s crucial Euro 2024 qualifier against Spain. The Norwegian captain; who recently made a £30 million move to the Gunners; couldn’t inspire his national team to victory, leaving their qualification hopes hanging by a thread.

Norway needed a win against Spain to keep their Euro 2024 qualification hopes alive, but they suffered a 1-0 defeat; thanks to a goal from Spain’s Gavi. With just one game left in the qualification campaign; Norway now sits five points adrift of direct qualification, putting their hopes in jeopardy. While there’s still a chance for them to qualify via the UEFA Nations League; it’s not the scenario they were hoping for.

Two big soccer stars, Martin Odegaard and Erling Haaland, play for Norway, but Norway’s team is still figuring out how to be really good.In a recent game against Spain, Odegaard, who also plays for Arsenal, didn’t play very well.

He only took one shot, didn’t make any important passes, and didn’t touch the ball much. The media in Norway gave him a low score, saying he didn’t do well.Arsenal had a big win in the Premier League against Manchester City, but then their players had to leave for international games, including Odegaard.

Now, Odegaard has to get ready and feel better before he goes back to play for Arsenal. His dream of playing in Euro 2024 for Norway might not happen, but he needs to do better. Arsenal has an important game against Chelsea coming up.


Odegaard’s struggles for Norway serve as a reminder of the pressure and expectations that come with being a star player for both club and country. It’s a test of his character and ability to bounce back, and Arsenal will hope that their £30 million playmaker can return stronger and help them continue their pursuit of Premier League glory.
