'So damn good': Some Arsenal fans laud Edu signing who was 'creating chances for fun' last night

Arsenal midfielder Martin Odegaard played a starring role for Norway this weekend as the Scandinavian country secured a 2-0 win over Latvia.

Goals from Erling Haaland and Mohamed Elyounoussi secured the three points for Norway as Odegaard impressed in Riga. The 22-year-old playmaker was named captain of his country earlier this year.

The win was enough to put Norway comfortably second in Group G of FIFA World Cup qualifying for UEFA. The Netherlands currently occupy the top spot after five games.
